ESA's Gravity Mission - GOCE

This brochure gives an introduction to the Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Mission GOCE, an Earth Explorer Core mission due for launch in 2006. GOCE is intended to provide the unique data set required to formulate global and regional models of the Earth's gravity field and the geoid (its reference equipotential surface) to high spatial resolution and accuracy. It will also advance research in the fields of steady-state ocean circulation, physics of the Earth's interior and levelling systems (based on GPS).
