GRACE Follow-On Mission

Once it is launched and operational in 2018, the GRACE-FO mission will continue the measurement of variations in the Earth’s gravity field to create datasets that enable scientists to develop an even deeper understanding of long-term global climate processes. The GRACE-FO mission will also demonstrate a new Laser Ranging Interferometer technology with the potential of significantly increasing the resolution of data measured in future GRACE-like missions.
