The Research Units intends to the following scientific objectives:
- Improvement and the error quantification of geophysical background models
- Improvement of spatial-temporal parameterizations
- Validation of temporal gravity field results against independent data
- Synthesis of results and recommendations for next-generation gravity missions (NGGMs)
The figure below shows an overview, of these main objectives, further broken down to sub-objectives, the contributing Individual Projects (IP) to address these objectives, and the project partners associated to the IPs.
