Breakthrough made in assessing marine phytoplankton health

...atellite measurements of its fluorescence an accomplishment that had been elusive for years. With this new tool and the continued use of the MODIS aqua satellite, scientists will now be able to gain a reasonably accurate picture of the ocean's health and productivity about every week, all over the pla...

NASA satellite detects red glow to map global ocean plant health

...gment chlorophyll, an indicator of the amount of plant life in the ocean. But with the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's aqua satellite, scientists have now observed "red-light fluorescence" over the open ocean. "Chlorophyll gives us a picture of how much phytoplankton is ...

NASA uses satellite to unearth innovation in crop forecasting

...cientist John Bolten described a new modeling product that uses data from the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for EOS (AMSR-E) sensor on NASA's aqua satellite to improve the accuracy of West African soil moisture. The group produced assessments of current soil moisture conditions, or "nowcasts," an...

Less Arctic ice means higher risks, experts warn

... of less than 4.24 million km in 2007, as observed in September by ESAs Envisat satellite. The previous record low, as observed by Envisat and the EOS aqua satellite, was in 2005 when the minimum ice extent was 5.5 million km. "We have been very lucky to have had the capability to monitor the polar re...

NASA satellite data helps assess the health of Florida's coral reef

... universities, including the University of South Florida. Data from the MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Terra and aqua satellites gave accurate, up-to-date information on sea surface temperatures to identify areas vulnerable to bleaching. The data was also used to meas...
