The Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) satellite has been gathering gravity gradient data for over three years to map the Earth's gravity field with un-precedented accuracy and spatial resolution.
By measuring Earth's gravity in detail, the GOCE mission is relevant to many areas of earth science, including solid earth processes.
High quality gravity gradient data and models are now available to users which open a new world of research. They provide a better understanding of the physics of the Earth's interior to gain new insights into geodynamics associated with the lithosphere, mantle composition and rheology, uplift and subduction processes.
The goal of this 2-day workshop is to provide training on the usage of GOCE data as well as to present the latest scientific results. Main workshop com-ponents are:
- show the latest results on GOCE data in relation to solid Earth,
- provide new users with tips and tricks on which models and software to use,
- discuss quality and reliability of gravity data and models,
- how to integrate GOCE with your own (local gravity) data.
- global, continent, regional and local
- with and without use of constraints
Mantle composition and dynamics
- Lithospheric-scale modelling constrained by potential fields
- deep mass anomalies and its expression in terms of potential fields
Local gravity modelling
- impact of GOCEon regional gravity field modelling
Isostatic compensation studies
- impact of GOCE in crustal rebounds due to previous loads
Time-variant studies for solid earth dynamics
- ice sheets
