Discover the challenges of space gravimetry missions through the video published by the European Commission.

Measuring gravity from space offers unique advantages over ground-based measurements.  Space-based instruments can provide a global view of Earth’s gravity field with uniform coverage, allowing for a more comprehensive understanding of variations in gravitational forces. This data is crucial for studying Earth’s geology, ocean currents, and climate change.

By improving the accuracy of these measurements, the atomic interferometer, core technology of the CARIOQA-PMP mission, should make it possible to monitor these climatic phenomena even more accurately.
