<span>The aim of geo-Q is to explore new frontiers of the determination of the Earth’s gravitational field and of monitoring the global and regional mass redistribution. geo-Q will advance on one hand the quantum metrology, and on the other the geodetic modeling to achieve the major step in accuracy that will enable scientific users to detect and reliably interpret processes of global and regional change.</span>
