Third CD for Southern Africa

Submitted by ORNL DAAC Staff on

The ORNL DAAC announces the release of the third and final in a series of CD-ROMs prepared for the Southern African Regional Science Initiative (SAFARI 2000).

SAFARI 2000 CD-ROM Series: Vol. 3 is a 5-disk set containing meteorological, fire, aerosol, atmospheric chemistry, and precipitation data, as well as a large collection of Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images taken aboard the Terra satellite.

The volume focuses primarily on the 2000 wet season--February through April--in the southern African region, defined as south of latitude 5° N.

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