SAFARI 2000 Annual Soil Respiration Data (Raich and Schlesinger 1992)

Data Set Overview

Data setSAFARI 2000 Annual Soil Respiration Data (Raich and Schlesinger 1992)
Release date2002-07-26
ProjectSAFARI 2000 (S2K)
Time Period1963-01-01 to 1992-01-01


This data set is a compilation of soil respiration rates (g C m-2 yr-1) from terrestrial and wetland ecosystems reported in the literature prior to 1992 subset for the Safari 2000 project. These rates were measured in a variety of ecosystems to examine rates of microbial activity, nutrient turnover, carbon cycling, root dynamics, and a variety of other soil processes.

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.
