Scientists measure the physiology of marine phytoplankton through satellite imagery

Scientists are now be able to gain a reasonably accurate picture of the ocean's health and productivity about every week, all over the planet.

Researchers from Oregon State University, NASA and other organizations said today that they have succeeded for the first time in measuring the physiology of marine phytoplankton through satellite measurements of its fluorescence ā€“ an accomplishment that had been elusive for years.

Data such as this will be critically important in evaluating the effect on oceans of global warming, climate change, desertification and other changes, the researchers said.
