Episode 111

NASA does a lot more than mapping our solar system…they have also been mapping our oceans for over 20 years! The ocean is extremely important in our Earth’s health, circulation, and economy, so it is equally as important that our ocean is in good health too! In 2022, NASA will be launching the PACE mission, which stands for Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem, to further advance their understanding of our oceanic and atmospheric health. Today’s guest is Ivona Cetinic, who is the project science lead for Ocean Biogeochemistry on this mission and has devoted her entire career to better understanding our world’s oceans.
