Within the framework of the project, high-quality validated terrestrial gravity field data sets (in particular deflections of the vertical and gravity data) were generated in Germany and Europe for the external validation of GOCE products. These data were used for the validation of existing satellite gravity models on the one hand and for the calculation of corresponding combined quasigeoid solutions for Germany and Europe on the other hand.
