Project: SAFARI 2000Project: 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 Reflectance of Fire Residue, Kruger National Park, Dry Season 2000Data Set: SAFARI 2000 Reflectance of Fire Residue, Kruger National Park, Dry Season 2000
The goal of this study was to understand the change in reflectance caused by the action of fire and the heterogeneity of fire effects (i.e., the fraction of the observation that burned and the combustion completeness of that observation). A spectral mixture model and field and satellite observations were used to compare changes in Landsat reflectance associated with fire and combustion completeness derived from field measurements at prescribed fire sites in South Africa and to substantiate and illustrate the model findings. The data are stored in a single ASCII file in comma-separate-value format (.csv).
