PACE Makes the Invisible Visible

PACE, the Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud and ocean Ecosystem mission, views our entire planet every day, returning data at a cadence that allows scientists to track and monitor the rapidly changing atmosphere and ocean, including cloud formation, aerosol movement, and differences in microscopic ocean life over time.

Ocean Color Countdown with PACE

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 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.

PACE's Instruments Reveal a New Dimension of Atmospheric Info

Two instruments on NASA’s PACE satellite mission will look at aerosols and clouds – the A and C in the mission’s name, Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem – to help scientists learn more about their characteristics and interactions in Earth’s systems..
