NASA Briefing Provides New Global View of Ocean Health
Using a new measure of the health of phytoplankton in the world's oceans made possible by data from NASA's Aqua satellite, scientists have discovered new regions where marine ecosystems are under stress. Worldwide, phytoplankton play a key role in the food chain of marine fisheries and the balance of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The new results on the health and growth habits of marine plants will help scientists improve their ability to accurately predict how Earth will respond to future changes in climate.
