Polar Orbit Earth Observation requirements have been considered for the Space Station era. Candidate model payload groupings (both an initial set and an evolutionary growth) have been derived assuming the availability of serviceable permanent polar platforms, e.g. a "morning" platform provided by ESA, and an 11 afternoon" one by NASA.
Deliverable: WP3000: This report is the output from WP3000 of the GOCE User Toolbox Specification. The study will select the best (in terms of accuracy and computational demands) algorithms to compute the variables listed in the user requirement document . This document will form the basis for the system specification work performed in WP4000 and the prototype and tutorials to be generated in WP5000, all available in this library.
Deliverable: WP4000: This document provides information on the definition of all system external interfaces and formats, the development of logical model of system functions, the complete specification of output content: data products, metadata, reports and logs.
