Data Set Overview
|Data set||SAFARI 2000 Carbon in Live Vegetation, 0.5-Deg (Olson)|
|Project||SAFARI 2000 (S2K)|
|Time Period||1960-01-01 to 1980-12-31|
This data set is a subset of Olson's Major World Ecosystem Complexes for southern Africa in ASCII GRID and binary image file formats. Olson's Major World Ecosystem Complexes Ranked by Carbon in Live Vegetation is a computerized database, used to generate a global vegetation map of 44 different land ecosystem complexes (mosaics of vegetation or landscapes) comprising seven broad groups.

SAFARI 2000 (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.
