Many conditions for the success of GOCE lie at the level of the processing of its data, which for a large part is going to be new to everyone. This implies that special and dedicated care of the data processing be taken; to ensure that the best Earth gravity field model can be delivered to the scientific users. The GOCINA project will in particular support the mission in two distinct cases, namely (1) to educate and prepare the community in using GOCE data for oceanography including sea level and climate research as well as operational prediction; and (2) to develop methods for generating regional gravity fields and to use them to generate a best possible regional gravity field and geoid model for the North Atlantic that can be used in validation of the GOCE products.
