Two years after the first workshop, as the Gravity Field and Steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) mission is nearing its launch, the European Space Agency (ESA) is organising its second International GOCE User Workshop, which will be held at ESA-ESRIN Frascati Italy on 8, 9 and 10 March 2004.


This workshop will provide a forum for presenting progress on the development of:
  • Satellite and its payload
  • Ground Segment up to level 1
  • Level 1-2 Data Processing
  • Level 3 Data Product developments
  • GOCE Data Exploitation preparations
  • GOCE National and EC project Activities
Information will also be provided on the current technical and programmatic status of the GOCE Project.


The Workshop is open to all  scientists with  an interest in exploiting GOCE gravity data products. Preparations are underway  in the international scientific community for exploitation of GOCE gravity data along with other geodetic and oceanographic data sources. Resulting high-precision geoid data are expected to have an impact in Oceanography, Solid-Earth Physics, Geodesy, Glaciology and Climate change research. The goal of the GOCE mission is to deliver a high-precision and high resolution global gravity field model, as well as global gridded geoid heights and gravity anomalies to the scientific community. ESA is presently coordinating efforts to produce validated high-resolution gravity and geoid models. Various groups and consortia throughout Europe have also expressed an interest in development of either level 2 or 3 products, and in pursuing GOCE-related research. In particular, this workshop will focus on the oceanographic applications, such as absolute dynamic topography, of the GOCE data in conjunction with other space-borne data, such as radar altimetry, and in-situ data and models. Oceanographers are encouraged to submit papers on the envisaged use of GOCE data, Contributions to the processing and validation of the GOCE data is also encouraged. This workshop provides an opportunity to publicise these higher level data processing and geophysical validation plans, as well as to coordinate such activities.
