Launched on 17 March 2009, ESA's Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) mission was the first Earth Explorer mission in orbit. This novel mission delivered a wealth of data to bring about a whole new level of understanding of one of Earth's most fundamental forces of nature ? the gravity field.
The ENVISAT Calibration and Validation Plan defines the activities that will calibrate ENVISAT instruments validate its data products, particularly the Level 2 (L2) geophysical products, derived from the ESA developed instruments (EDIs). Detailed information on these instruments is available from the ENVISAT web pageshttp://www.envisat.esa.int/
The 2004 Envisat and ERS Symposium was held in Salzburg - Austria from 6 to 10 September 2004. The 2004 Envisat and ERS Symposium provided a forum for investigators to present results of ongoing research project activities and assess the development of applications and services.
The Dragon Programme concerns the exploitation of BSA and Chinese BO data particularly from the ERS and Envisat satellites for monitoring and mapping applications in 16 thematic application areas in the P.R. China. The abstracts presented herein detail the results achieved since the Lijiang Symposium that was held in July 2006 in P.R. China.
The Dragon Programme focuses on science and applications development in P.R. China exploiting mainly data from ESA ERS and Envisat missions. This brochure describes the programme, projects and partners.
