    This product (EGG_NOM_2) contains the L2 gravity gradients in GRF (Gradiometer Reference Frame) with corrections:

    • Externally calibrated and corrected gravity gradients
    • Corrections to gravity gradients due to temporal gravity variations
    • Flags for outliers, fill-in gravity gradients for data gaps with flags
    • Gravity gradient error estimates

    Level 2 products are generated by the High Level Processing Facility, a distributed system developed and operated by the European GOCE Gravity-Consortium (EGG-C).
