Several global geopotential models based on Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) satellite have been published in the last few years. Some of these models use combinations of different satellite missions, while others use only GOCE data. This paper presents the evaluation and analysis of six Global Gravity Models (GGMs) using GOCE data, in South America
