PACE: NASA's Next Generation Ocean Color Satellite Mission Town Hall

Session ID#: 11201

Session Description:
Earth’s changing climate is measurably impacting aquatic ecosystems.  To understand and predict further impacts, it remains critical to study ecological processes, determine the roles of the ocean, land and atmosphere in biogeochemical cycling, and investigate the effects of rising atmospheric CO2. NASA initiated the PACE mission to continue its multi-decade record of satellite ocean color observations.  PACE will collect measurements essential for understanding marine and terrestrial biology, biogeochemistry, ecology, and cloud-aerosol dynamics and improving climate model predictions. This Town Hall will provide community members interested in satellite observations with updates on the PACE mission and its science.
