Project: SAFARI 2000
This dataset contains an archived copy of the Safari 2000 Project website as of January 2020. The goal of SAFARI 2000 was to identify and understand the relationships between the physical, chemical, biological, that underlie the biogeophysical and biogeochemical systems of southern Africa. The last updates to the website and the underlying database were made in February 2002. In 2008, the website and its underlying database were integrated into the pages presented in this archived dataset.

Data File Information
This dataset contains one file, historical_UVA_edited.tar.gz, which is a compressed directory containing a complete copy of all html pages from the SAFARI 2000 Project website. These files may be opened in any web browser.
Application and Derivation
This website content is provided for informational purposes only.
Each dataset archived from the SAFARI 2000 project contains unique quality assessment details and provides references to relevant publications.
Data Acquisition, Materials, and Methods
This archived website provides a complete copy of all the html pages from the SAFARI 2000 Project in a compressed file and is provided for informational purposes only. The last updates to the website were made in Januaary 2008. It should be noted that most of the changes made in 2008 were to transform database driven content into static web pages.
The goal of SAFARI 2000 was to identify and understand the relationships between the biogeophysical and biogeochemical systems of southern Africa. SAFARI 2000 entailed:
- integrating remote sensing, computational modeling, airborne sampling and ground-based studies;
- linking the biological, physical and chemical components of the regional ecosystems by integrating them within the semi-closed atmospheric gyre persistent over the region;
- combining the expertise and knowledge base of regional and international scientists.
There are more than 100 datasets from the Safari 2000 project archived at the ORNL DAAC in the following areas: Ancillary Data, Atmospheric and Airborne Studies, Background Land Cover, Background Soils, Climate and Meteorology, Field Based Measurements, Hydrology, Regional Data, and Remote Sensing. See https://daac.ornl.gov/s2k/ for a complete listing of all archived data products produced from the Safari 2000 project.
These data are available through the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC).
