Information from satellite observations of sea surface temperature, salinity and sea surface elevation is integrated into large-scale global seascapes which show patterns of biodiversity and effects of environmental change on pelagic community structure.

EXport Processes in the Ocean from Remote Sensing (EXPORTS) is a large-scale NASA-led field campaign that will provide critical information for quantifying the export and fate of upper ocean net primary production (NPP) using satellite observations and state of the art ocean technologies.

The COral Reef Airborne Laboratory (CORAL) measured the condition of representative coral reefs across the global range of reef biogeophysical values.
