1.21.1                   Objectives of the study

The objective of this study is to develop in close collaboration with ESA's HPF effort algorithms and input and output specification for the subsequent generation of a user toolbox that is required by the general science community for the exploitation of GOCE level 2 and ERS-ENVISAT altimetry. The purpose of this study is accordingly to:

        Consolidate the User Toolbox requirements.

        Carry out a scientific trade off study to select the toolbox processing and viewing functions.

        Produce a Toolbox output specification document.

        Produce an algorithm specification document which details the necessary level for coding.

        Produce a Toolbox architectural design document mapping the required functionality and interfaces such as auxiliary data.
