ESA Releases First GOCE Global Model

The European Space Agency (ESA) announced today that it was releasing the first global gravitational field model of the Earth based upon its satellite called GOCE (Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer). These data are important to scientists because they are “a crucial reference for accurately measuring ocean circulation, sea-level change and ice dynamics – all affected by climate change.” Learn more about this Earth observing satellite model online now here.
