Photosynthesis visible from Space [Space]
posted December 6 2013 12:00.19 by spic0m




NASA scientists have discovered a new way to use satellites to measure what's occurring inside Earth's land plants at a cellular level.

NASA scientists established a method to turn this satellite data into global maps of the subtle phenomenon in more detail than ever before.
