Collecting physical data is laborious, time consuming, and costly, and it can be applied at only a limited scale. Also, that data is subject to a number of uncertainties. In contrast, GRACE-based data is readily available, free, can be applied at a large scale such as the Indus basin, and is reliable. Moreover, there are no data sharing issues as compared to traditional datasets.
