There’s phytoplankton in the ocean, which
are microorganisms in the ocean and they give off oxygen. OCI is capturing the
full spectrum, from the ultraviolet visible hyperspectral wavelengths to a
shortwave infrared, and all of that is to differentiate the different species of
phytoplankton. Science that PACE will be producing is going to be amazing, because the
breadth of all the complementary measurements that will be made to study
how the ocean and atmosphere interact together will be a first-time occasion. That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
