Abstract

The expected impact of the GOCE project on the geosciences requires that the concerned communities get organized in order to make the best possible use of the data and models to be derived. The French geodesists, geophysists and oceanographers are going to cooperate at different levels of the mission and, for so doing, a transverse and informal structure, FROG, has been set up. Besides being a forum where scientists can exchange their views and interact in planning their activities, FROG will help providing new direction and even tools to help teams and especially young scientists in their research.
