GOCE applications

PoliMi  is  one of the official ESA centers for Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) mission data analysis and gravity field computation, in the framework of the ESA High-level Processing Facility (HPF).

The satellite geodesy group@PoliMi developed and applied its own data analysis ‘SPACE-WISE’ approach for the reconstruction of the global Earth gravity field, and more specifically for the determination of a low resolution global geoid model. To this aim, a cluster of computers (124 cores – 0.7 TB of RAM) was installed and is currently deployed at the Como Campus.

GOCE gravity field model is exploited for a variety of applications, such as:
