DescriptionFOR EXPERT USE ONLY. The GRACE Level 1B data provide all necessary inputs to derive monthly time variations in the Earth's gravity field. Level 1B data are also used for GRACE orbit and mean gravity field determination. It contains K-Band Ranging Data Product (KBR1B), Star Camera Data Product (SCA1B), Accelerometer Data Product (ACC1B), GPS Data Product (GPS1B), Vector Products (VGN1B, VGO1B, VGB1B, VCM1B, VKB1B, VSL1B), Quaternion Products (QSA1B, QSB1B), and Housekeeping Products (AHK1B, IHK1B, THR1B, TNK1B, MAG1B, MAS1B, TIM1B)
