UMaine Endeavor to Better Understand Phytoplankton, Ocean Carbon

Dr. Ivona Cetinic is at sea participating in NASA’s Ship-Aircraft Bio-Optical Research (SABOR) mission. SABOR brings together marine and atmospheric scientists to tackle optical issues associated with satellite observations of phytoplankton. The goal is to better understand marine ecology and phytoplankton’s major role in the global cycling of atmospheric carbon between the ocean and the atmosphere.
