NASA PACE Applications Workshop: Leveraging Science to Advance Society
The Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission is NASA’s next great investment in Earth Science. PACE will advance our Earth-observing and monitoring capabilities through hyper-spectral imaging and multi-angle polarimetric observations of the coupled ocean, atmosphere, and land ecosystems.
The PACE Mission Applications Program’s first annual workshop will be on September 23rd & 24th, 2020. This 2-day virtual workshop will showcase future uses of PACE satellite data and products to support decision-making for water resource management, air quality and health monitoring, climate modeling, disasters response and mitigation, and ecological forecasting. The workshop will encourage open collaboration across disciplines engaging individuals and organizations, including universities, government agencies, and commercial, non-profit, and private sectors.
