Free Virtual 2020 PACE Applications Workshop Sept 23-24
The Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission is NASA’s next great investment in Earth Science, continuing NASA’s legacy of over 40 years of satellite ocean color measurements. 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. PACE will give us an unprecedented view of the Earth and will take the Earth’s pulse in new ways for years to come.
The PACE mission will host its first Applications Workshop on the 23rd and 24th of September 2020. This 2-day virtual workshop will focus on future uses of PACE satellite data and products to support decision-making in the context of water resources, air quality and health, climate, disasters, and ecological forecasting. The workshop will build a trans-disciplinary dialogue centered around the PACE mission and how its anticipated data products may be leveraged to advance society. The workshop targets participants interested in applying PACE data for resource management, decision-making, public health applications, and policy analysis. This workshop will encourage open collaboration from individuals and organizations from diverse backgrounds including universities, government agencies, and commercial, non-profit, and private sectors.
This will be the first of a series of annual PACE Applications workshops.
