These lecture notes were compiled on the occasion of the summerschool ’Global Hydrological Cycle’, organized by DFG’s priority program SPP1257 ’Mass Transport and Mass Distribution in the System Earth’ at September 12-16, 2011 in Mayschoss/Ahr. Our aim was to familiarize students with different background (geodesy, hydrology, oceanography, geophysics) with some mathematical concepts that are fundamental for analysing level-2 products (sets of spherical harmonic coefficients) from the GRACE mission and related geophysical data sets (model outputs in gridded form). The focus was on concepts, and technical proofs were avoided. Specific topics were filtering and basin averaging, and the application of the principal component analysis technique.
