ECCO Central Production
The "Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean" (ECCO) project produces sustained estimates of the complete global three-dimensional state of the ocean by assimilating observations with ocean circulation models.
ECCO-Ices is an ECCO-follow-on project that aims to produce increasingly accurate syntheses of all available global-scale ocean and sea-ice data at resolutions that start to resolve ocean eddies.
GRACE, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, twin satellites launched in March 2002, are making detailed measurements of Earth's gravity field which will lead to discoveries about gravity and Earth's natural systems.
The "GPS-aided Real-Time Earthquake And Tsunami (GREAT) Alert System" project exploits GPS data to enable more accurate and timely assessment of the magnitude and structure of earthquakes, as well as the magnitude and direction of resulting tsunamis.
Jason-1 is a follow-on to the highly successful TOPEX/Poseidon satellite mission that measured global ocean surface topography and its changes and improved understanding of ocean circulation and its effect on global climate.
This satellite mission is a follow-on to Jason-1 to continue the climate data record of global ocean surface topography for monitoring the changes in ocean circulation and sea level.
SMAP - Soil Moisture Active & Passive
SMAP will provide global measurements of soil moisture and its freeze/thaw state.
Jason-3 will continue the time series of ocean surface topography data after TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1 and Jason-2. Launch is planned for 2015.
