LEO Science Seminar: Preliminary Results of the On-orbit Calibration of the Ocean Color Instrument (OCI) on the Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) Mission


Gerhard Meister, Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, and ocean Ecosystem (PACE) Mission Instrument Scientist



Launched in February 2024, the Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, and ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission represents NASA’s next investment in ocean biology, clouds, and aerosol data records. A key feature of PACE is the inclusion of an advanced radiometer known as the Ocean Color Instrument (OCI), a global mapping radiometer that combines multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing. This presentation describes the results of the first few months of on-orbit OCI characterization measurements.
