SAFARI 2000 (S2K) Data Sets

S2K: The SAFARI 2000 project was an international science initiative to study the linkages between land and atmosphere processes in the southern African region. In addition, SAFARI 2000 examined the relationship of biogenic, pyrogenic, and anthropogenic emissions and the consequences of their deposition to the functioning of the biogeophysical and biogeochemical systems of southern Africa. This initiative, which was conducted in 1999-2001, was built around a number of ongoing, already-funded activities by NASA, the international community, and African nations in the southern African region.

All S2K data sets are available FREE of charge. S2K Data Sets requiring special processing are marked SPR. You will need to sign in to order S2K data sets. Currently 109 S2K data sets are available online.
