More Southern African Data

Submitted by ORNL DAAC Staff on 2005-03-08

The ORNL DAAC announces the release of nine data sets for the Southern African Regional Science Initiative (SAFARI 2000). These data sets, originally prepared in coordination with data investigators by the SAFARI 2000 Data Group at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, contain vegetation data and soil and plant C and N isotopes data for southern Africa; daily rainfall, leaf area, tree ring, FPAR, surface irradiance, and albedo data for sites in Mongu, Zambia; and soil properties, surface albedo, and radiation flux data from Mongu and Skukuza sites.

The SAFARI 2000 project was conducted during 1999-2001 to develop a better understanding of the earth-atmosphere-human system in southern Africa.
