PACE Applications Water Quality & Resources Focus Session

July 28, 2021

NASA's first community focus session for the Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission was held by the Applications Team for the science, applications, and decision-making communities on July 28th. This one-day event promoted active participation and round-table discussion on future uses of PACE satellite data products to support research & applied sciences in the context of water quality and water resources. The objectives of the event were:

  • Increase awareness of PACE data, research, and applications related to water quality and water resources.
  • Understand the data challenges that water professionals may experience when using PACE satellite data and identify ways to address data barriers before launch.
  • Explore advanced & exploratory PACE products that may add value to the research and applied science user community.
  • PACE community development, encouraging engagement/inclusivity with the user community, other earth missions, resource managers, decision-makers, and capacity development.

The focus session encouraged open discussion from individuals and organizations from diverse backgrounds including universities, government agencies, and commercial, non-profit, and private sectors.
