SAFARI 2000 is an
international regional science
initiative being developed for Southern Africa to explore, study and address linkages
between land-atmosphere processes and the relationship of biogenic, pyrogenic or
anthropogenic emissions and the consequences of their deposition to the functioning of
the biogeophysical and biogeochemical systems of southern Africa. This
being built around a number of on-going, already funded activities by NASA, the
international community and African nations in the southern African region.
SAFARI 2000 Synthesis Workshop
Oct. 6-11, 2002
Charlottesville, VA USA
Final Program Schedule and
List of Abstracts
(in Adobe PDF format).
The Objective of this conference is to take steps towards project synthesis
by adding additional analysis
to the work that is coming out in the Global Change Biology, Journal
of Arid Environments, International Journal of Remote Sensing and the
Journal of Geophysical Research - Atmospheres Special Issues.
Approximately 75% of the emphasis at this conference will be on
the Science Synthesis sections with the remaining focus
being on the Science for Policy Synthesis sections.
The Expected Product of the conference will be a workshop book
similar to the books associated with past Chapman Conferences on
Biomass Burning and Global Change.

The EO-1/Landsat-7 tandem image pair over the SAFARI 2000 Skukuza site
(announced in the second SAFARI Newsletter) is now available for public
release from the Landsat-7 Project Science Office.
The Earth Observing 1 (EO-1) Advanced Land Imager (ALI) and Landsat-7
Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) data sets cover part of the Kruger National
Park on May 30, 2001 and were collected only a minute apart.
The data are available on CD-ROM and by FTP. The following link
provides additional details about the tandem data set:
