[31-May-16] PRISM, the new Portable Remote Imaging Spectrometer created at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, is an airborne instrument designed to observe hard-to-see coastal water phenomena. In NASA's upcoming Coral Reef Airborne Laboratory (CORAL) field campaign, PRISM will observe entire reef ecosystems in more of the world's reef area - hundreds of times more - than has ever been observed before.
