SAFARI 2000 Estimated BVOC Emissions for Southern African Land Cover Types

Data Set Overview

Data setSAFARI 2000 Estimated BVOC Emissions for Southern African Land Cover Types
Release date2004-11-01
ProjectSAFARI 2000 (S2K)
Time Period2001-01-01


Improved vegetation distribution and emission data for Africa south of the equator were developed for the Southern African Regional Science Initiative (SAFARI 2000) and combined with biogenic volatile organic compound (BVOC) emission measurements to estimate BVOC emissions for the southern African region. BVOC emissions were estimated for southern Africa on a monthly basis over a one-year period by combining GIS layers of vegetation, LAI, and climate with a biogenic emissions model, GLOBEIS (Guenther et al, 1993; Guenther, 1999).

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.
