Ocean Color Countdown with PACE

  • Released Monday, February 5, 2024

The color of our oceans, lakes and rivers can tell us a lot about what's going on just beneath the surface. With the new hyperspectral capabilities of the Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission, we'll know more about the health of aquatic ecosystems and those impacts on human health and climate studies. We explore just five different ocean colors around the globe and find out what those colors tell us.
