GOCE Calibration and Validation

The goal of performing GOCE Calibration and Validation activities was to quantify the mission’s system response (calibration), to verify the performance by comparison with independent sources of data (validation), and in doing so to assess and quantify uncertainties in the measurements.

GOCE satellite calibration was performed every 60 days.
