Objectives and Applications The aim of MAGIC is to obtain high-resolution measurements in space and time and include the capability to determine the variations in gravity field due to mass change in hydrology, cryosphere, oceanography, solid Earth and climate change signals so as to serve science and operational products including emergency services. NGGM is ESA's contribution, complemented by NASA's MCDO. MCDO is a pair of satellites in the same orbit, separated by 100km.
