Space Satellite Produces World's First-Ever Gravity Field Map
By: Katie Cordrey
Jul 18, 10
The gravity field map known as GEOID was generated from readings taken by a low-orbiting known as GOCE, which stands for Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer. GOEC precisely measures the Earth’s gravitational field and the data is used to create the gravity field map.
The GEOID gravity field map will help in studying oceans, predicting volcanoes and earthquakes, helping with structural engineering, and providing a better understanding of Earth’s gravity.
