[29-Sep-18] Our ocean supports one in 45 American jobs and contributes over $350 billion to the U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) every year. Ocean color observations by PACE will assist fisheries management and toxic algae bloom response. PACE measurements of the ocean and atmosphere will inform water, air quality, and weather forecasts, improve national security and our understanding of Earth's climate. PACE products will aid decision makers in policy, military, commercial sectors, and the public.
