GOCE

GOCE satellite data will improve our understanding of ocean currents

Ocean currents from GOCE

Satellite data collected by ESA’s Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) have been used to create a more accurate gravity map of global ocean currents. Users can register and access the data through ESA's website for free.

Japan: 2011 Earthquake affected Gravity

GOCE gravity results compared to a model

ESA’s GOCE satellite revealed earlier this month that the great Japanese Earthquake from 2011 caused a tiny change in the local gravity. The satellite mapped Earth's gravity for four years and clearly shows a disturbance after 2011.

ESA: Gravity mapping satellite is nearing end of mission

The Moho and lithosphere for the northeast Atlantic captured by GOCE data.

ESA's Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) mission will end this year. It has begun its decent towards Earth and will be reentering our atmosphere probably in mid-October. Having nearly tripled its planned lifetime, this Gravity field and steady-state mission has successfully mapped variations in Earth’s gravity with extreme detail.
