Sensor Description:

The Pre-Aerosol-Clouds-Ecosystem (PACE) and Aerosol-Cloud-Ecosystems (ACE) mission aim to advance research in ocean biology and biogeochemical cycles.

Calibration:

The need for direct lunar calibration, a vicarious calibration site, and global data for product validation are listed among the mission requirements.

Data Availability:

The data likely will be freely and openly available.

Applications:

The products derived from these sensors will be applied to research on the carbon cycle, marine ecosystem, phytoplankton physiology, near-shore and estuarine processes, and on physical-biological interactions.
