CEOS Instrument: 3-Axis Electrostatic Gravity Gradiometer

Agency: ESA
Mission: GOCE
Description:Main objective to measure the 3 components of the gravity-gradient tensor (i.e. gradiometer data).
Spatial Resolution: N/A
Swath Width: N/A
Wavebands: N/A
Technology: Gradiometer/accelerometer
Description: System designed to be sensitive to anomalies of the Earth’s gravity field. Implemented in several modes by approprate networking of accelerometers, tensors, etc.). Applicable only in LEO.
