NASA to Explore Volcanoes, Coral Reefs, and Snowpacks

2016 was a big year for NASA’s field campaigns studying our changing planet, and 2017 will be just as exciting. New Earth science missions include HyspIRI, which will collect data on coral reef health and volcanic gas emissions; PACE, which will monitor the diversity of oceanic phytoplankton and their impact on the marine carbon cycle; and SnowEx, which will help determine how much water is stored in Earth’s terrestrial snow-covered regions.
