1) G, M, and R, respectively, are the gravitational constant, the Earth's mass and the Earth's reference radius, respectively, while P1m denotes the fully normalized Legendre polynomials depending on the harmonic degree and order m. The goal is now to determine the corresponding harmonic coefficients C1m and S1m as accurately as possible. The dedicated gravity gradiometry mission GOCE will essentially deliver two types of measurements: GPS satellite-to-satellite tracking (SST) data reflecting orbit perturbations and representing first order derivatives of the gravitational potential, as well as gravity gradients (SGG) measured by the 3axes gravity gradiometer representing second order derivatives, denoted as SGG tensor.

Many years ago the problem was addressed in satellite geodesy whether the collocation scheme based on covariances estimated on the rotation group, under the hypothesis of stochastic invariance of the underlying random field, could be directly applied to the time-wise data analysis, which should be typically based on a prior hypothesis of time stationarity.
