Latest Gravimetry Stories
ESA’s GOCE satellite is not only mapping Earth’s gravity with unrivalled precision, but is also revealing new insight into air density and wind in space.
Satellites offer a frequent overview of our entire planet – covered mostly by water – and provide valuable data to monitor and understand global ocean circulation. Understanding water currents at the ocean surface is important for many applications.
For the first time, the melting of glaciers in Greenland could now be measured with high accuracy from space.
WASHINGTON, May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Gravity Probe B (GP-B) mission has confirmed two key predictions derived from Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which the spacecraft was designed to test.
A team working with Europe's GOCE satellite has shed light on the way the Earth looks from a gravitational point of view.
ESAâ€™s GOCE satellite has reached its ambitious goal of mapping Earth's gravity with unprecedented precision.
Scientists from around the world have been hearing about the latest results from ESA's new GOCE, SMOS and CryoSat Earth observation missions at the biggest scientific gathering of the year.
Following recovery from a glitch that prevented ESAâ€™s GOCE gravity mission from sending any scientific data to the ground, the satellite has been gently brought back down to its operational altitude and resumed normal service â€“ delivering the most detailed gravity data to date.
