Remote sensing of ocean color in the Yellow Sea can be a challenge. Phytoplankton, suspended sediments, and dissolved organic matter color the water while various types of aerosols modify those colors before they are "seen" by orbiting radiometers. Aqua-MODIS satellite data from February 24, 2015 were used to create this image.
NASA's OceanColor Web is supported by the Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Our responsibilities include the collection, processing, calibration, validation, archive and distribution of ocean-related products from a large number of operational, satellite-based remote-sensing missions providing ocean color, sea surface temperature and sea surface salinity data to the international research community since 1996.

I can't believe that beaming electrons to form words on a screen will ever be as convenient and efficient as growing huge forests in Canada, cutting down the trees, grinding them to a pulp, pressing it into thousands of sheets, smearing ink on them, then having fleets of trucks carry the result to everyone's doorstep.
I would presume these folks know what they are doing and there's no additional risk of blocking up the system ("attention residents of Portland: eat more oatmeal!"). This is probably only worth doing at a certain scale too.
