  abstract = {{The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission provides
measurements of spatiotemporal change in land water storage that may
improve simulation results of land surface models (LSMs). We show that a
transfer scheme recently developed within the Organising Carbon and
Hydrology in Dynamic Ecosystems (ORCHIDEE) LSM significantly improves
the simulated land water storage. Over large tropical rivers basins,
model results without the transfer scheme provide significantly smaller
amplitudes of water storage than observed by GRACE. Including the
transfer scheme that accounts for water stored in the river systems and
aquifers during its transfer to the oceans leads to predicted land water
storage that are comparable to GRACE observations. Water stored in
aquifers contributes about half the seasonal variation of water storage
over large basins such as the Amazon, Congo, Yangtze, Ganges,
Brahmaputra, and Mekong.
