Satellite Gravimetry v. Altimetry for Geoid Determination

The question posed in this post is; whether it is better to use satellite gravimetry or satellite altimetry to determine a marine geoid? Satellite Gravimetry Major Missions: GOCE (ESA), GRACE (NASA) How it works: GOCE uses a gradiometer which is comprised of six accelerometers that measure differences in the gravity field. GRACE measures gravity by … Continue reading Satellite Gravimetry v. Altimetry for Geoid Determination
