CHAMP - A geoscience mission to "Planet Earth"
Conceived at the Potsdam GeoResearch Centre, CHAMP is a research satellite which, operating from a near-Earth orbit, made important contributions towards the exploration of the Earth’s magnetic and gravitational field as well as for atmospheric physics. It provided reference data of hitherto unattained accuracy for geodesy, new insights in geophysics and oceanography, and contributions to climate research.
