South Pacific Bio-optics Cruise

Members of our field support group are cruising across the South Pacific and Southern Ocean this month collecting optical and biological data that will help us improve the ocean color measurements that we make from low Earth orbit. You can follow their blog at NASA's Earth Observatory to learn more.
