NASA's PACE satellite and climate change



Q: What is the PACE satellite?
A: PACE (Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem) is a satellite launched by NASA to study tiny particles in the Earth's atmosphere and oceans.

Q: What do these tiny particles do?
A: These particles, called aerosols, help form clouds, which affect the climate and weather.

Q: Why is it important to study aerosols?
A: Aerosols play a big role in shaping our climate, but scientists don't fully understand how they work. By studying them, we can better understand how human activities affect the climate.

Q: What will the PACE satellite do?
A: PACE will monitor aerosols and phytoplankton (tiny plants in the ocean) every one to two days. This will help scientists understand how aerosols affect cloud formation and the climate.

Q: How will this help us?
A: By improving our understanding of aerosols and the climate, we can make better decisions about how to reduce our impact on the environment and slow down climate change.

This is related to Earth science, environmental science, and physics. By studying the Earth's atmosphere and oceans, we can better understand how our planet works and how we can protect it. ‎
