Global Gravity Field Models

We kindly ask the authors of the models to check the links to the original websites of the models from time to time.
Please let us know if something has changed.

The table can be interactively re-sorted by clicking on the column header fields (Nr, Model, Year, Degree, Data, Reference).
In the data column, the datasets used in the development of the models are summarized, where S is for satellite (e.g., GRACE, GOCE, LAGEOS), A is for altimetry, and G for ground data (e.g., terrestrial, shipborne and airborne measurements).

The links calculate and show in the last columns of the table directly invoke the Calculation Service and Visualization page for the selected model.
For models with a registered doi ("digital object identifier") the last column contains the symbol , which directly opens the page on "http://dx.doi.org/".
If you click on the reference, the complete list of references can be seen.
