Ocean Color Feature
It's the smaller of Earth's two remaining ice sheets, but it still stores a lot of water. Melting of this ice sheet is increasing as climate warms. If it melted completely it could increase sea level by roughly 6 meters.
Uneven mixing of Greenland's meltwater into the surrounding ocean likely contributes to phytoplankton diversity which sometimes manifests itself as variations in ocean color in images such as this one.

Ocean Biology Distributed Active Archive Center
The OBPG serves as a Distributed Active Archive Center for satellite ocean biology data produced or collected under NASA's Earth Observing System Data and Information System, including those from historical missions and partner space organizations.
SeaDAS is an image analysis package for the processing and display of satellite ocean color data.
SeaBASS is a repository of in situ oceanographic data to support algorithm development and satellite data product validation activities.
Field Support Group
The OBPG maintains a Field Support Group that collects in situ data, engages in community measurement protocols activities, and hosts an HPLC phytoplankton pigment processing facility.
