Project: SAFARI 2000

Project: SAFARI 2000
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.

Data Set: SAFARI 2000 Atmospheric Aerosol Measurements, Hand-held Hazemeters, Zambia
In conjunction with the AERONET (AErosol RObotic NETwork) participation in SAFARI 2000, the USDA Forest Service deployed handheld hazemeters in western Zambia from mid-June to late September 2000. Thirty-eight hazemeters were deployed within a 900 km x 900 km region in western Zambia to verify and study the aerosol properties in MODIS data. The handheld measurements were compared with satellite measurements. The hazemeter data were used to examine the effects of inhomogeneous atmosphere on MODIS aerosol product validation and to investigate the dependency of MODIS aerosol measurements on look angle and ground vegetation.
