    This is the nominal EGG product (EGG_NOM_1b), containing the raw measurements from the accelerometer, instrument-calibrated and corrected and the gravity gradients in the instrument reference frame.

    The processing of GOCE data from Level 0 to Level 1b, carried out by the Instrument Processing Facility (IPF), converts the ordered L0 time series into engineering units and performs calibration, correction and geolocation of data along the orbit.

    Processing level
    Level 1b
