        ABSTRACT: 
      /AB    We have used the new gravity field model GGM01C derived from GRACE data 
        to reanalyze DORIS data from 1993.0 to 2003.2 using the Gipsy /Oasis 
        software and a free-network approach. We have estimated the position and 
        velocity of each DORIS station in ITRF2000. In order to test the accuracy 
        of these results, we have compared them to the positions and velocities of 
        43 collocated GPS stations using local ties and covariance information. 
        DORIS results computed using the GGM01C gravity field instead of the EGM96 
        gravity field show a significantly improved external agreement with GPS. 
        Position agreement of 12-26 mm was reduced to 10-13 mm and velocity 
        agreement of 3.3-3.7 mm/yr was reduced to 2.4-3.3 mm/yr. This can be 
        interpreted as an external test of the accuracy of the new GGM01C gravity 
        field.
