|Abstrakt EN:||Validation of GOCE-based global geopotential models (GGMs) is a significant topic for both modelers and users. There have already been many studies performed on this topic based on different methods. This study deals with comparison of GOCE-based GGMs with topographic-isostatic models using third-order derivatives of the geopotential. The third-order geopotential derivatives are calculated from various releases of time-wise (TIM) and direct (DIR) GGMs in a regular coordinate grid. New non-singular formulas for spherical harmonic synthesis of third-order potential derivatives are used for this purpose. Third-order derivatives of the gravitational potential generated by isostatically-compensated topography are also computed from topographic-isostatic models. Then the two sets of the third-order derivatives are compared and their correlation is studied in both spatial and spectral domains. Special attention is given to higher-degree spherical harmonics. Also the improvement of various TIM and DIR releases is assessed.|
