What is this professional review?

This review is designed to characterize the NASA PACE (Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem) mission user community in terms of its composition, activities, remote sensing needs, and research interests.  We will use this to plan outreach and applications before PACE launches in order to tailor them to your needs as part of the future PACE user community and help enhance the society value of the mission.

Why are we asking you to complete this questionnaire?

As a professional in the field, you have been identified as someone with insight into how PACE data can be used and applied. We are interested in how you plan to use PACE data in your work. Your answers will help NASA anticipate the scope of PACE science and applications as well as the socioeconomic impact of future PACE products. 

If you would like further information about this questionnaire, please contact Maria Tzortziou by e-mail at, or Ali Omar at

For open-ended questions, please constrain your thoughts to 1000 characters.
  • Unless otherwise indicated, make only one choice per multiple-choice item. Please choose the answer that most closely matches your situation.
  • The response “NA” means “not applicable” or “not appropriate.” Please choose this response only in cases where you feel that the subject matter of the question is unrelated to your work. Some questions do not have a “not applicable” alternative.
  • When you provide an ‘other’ answer, we will categorize this answer in the analysis of the results.

Thank you for your time and attention in helping NASA improve how we engage with the mission user community!
