PACE mission will provide unprecedented insight into ocean life


Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Goddard introduces the agency’s most advanced ocean monitoring mission called Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, Ocean Ecosystem (PACE), which is currently being developed.

The remote sensing program will help scientists understand the relationship between aerosols, clouds, and microscopic marine algae known as phytoplankton. Data from PACE will also give scientists more insight into climate change by demonstrating how the ocean and atmosphere interact and exchange carbon dioxide.
