The final release of the GOCE space-wise solution is based on the processing of the whole mission dataset (November 2009 to October 2013). It consists in global grids of gravity gradients at $0.2^{\circ}\times 0.2^\circ$ spatial resolution and in a spherical-harmonic gravity model derived by a discretized quadrature formula and by proper global regularization. Error estimates are also computed by Monte Carlo simulations. The global consistency, high accuracy and spatial resolution of the GOCE models are providing outstanding applications in the fields of Geodesy, Oceanography and Solid-Earth Geophysics, significantly contributing to improve the knowledge of our planet Earth.
