Data Set Overview
|Data set||SAFARI 2000 MODIS Water and Heat Fluxes, Maun, Botswana, Dry Season 2001|
|Project||SAFARI 2000 (S2K)|
A physically-based model, Energy: Surface Towards Atmosphere (ESTA), was used to model and map the energy and water balances of a heterogeneous land surface in a savanna environment on the southern fringe of the Okavango Delta, near Maun, Botswana. ESTA is governed by remotely sensed values of surface temperature, reflection, and vegetation density. Surface reflectance data from the MODIS sensor aboard the Terra satellite were obtained for the Okavango Delta region for September of 2001.

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.
