GRACE Ground Tracks Plots Europe

Based on the predicted orbit for GRACE-A the ground track over Europe is plotted (at 5s spacing) for each month of the GRACE mission to illustrate the ground track coverage. One should note that the actual coverage used for gravity recovery can differ significantly due to larger data gaps in the science instrument data occuring  in the particular month. In this way the displayed plots give the "optimum" coverage possible.
