After four years of working to map out Earth's gravity, the European Space Agency's Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) mission is nearing its end.

Debate On Sloping Sea Settled By GOCE
2013-02-15 15:17:53

For decades, scientists have disagreed about whether the sea is higher or lower heading north along the east coast of North America. Thanks to precision gravity data from ESA’s GOCE satellite, this controversial issue has now been settled. The answer? It’s lower.

GOCE’s Second Mission To Improve Gravity Map
2012-11-16 12:22:31

ESA’s GOCE gravity satellite has already delivered the most accurate gravity map of Earth, but its orbit is now being lowered in order to obtain even better results.
