Description

The effect of clouds and aerosols on regional and global climate is of great importance. Two longstanding elements of the NASA climate and radiation science program are field studies incorporating airborne remote-sensing and in-situ measurements of clouds and aerosols. is Data products include: (1) cloud profiling with 30-m vertical and 200-m horizontal resolution at 1064 nm, 532 nm, and 355 nm;(2) aerosol, boundary layer, and smoke plume profiling;(3) optical depth estimates (column and by layer); and(4) extinction profiles. The CPL provides information to permit a comprehensive analysis of radiative and optical properties of optically thin clouds. Data users are asked to read and abide by the CPL data usage policy found at [http://virl.gsfc.nasa.gov/cpl/cpl_register.htm].

Project

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.
