SunSat SAFARI 2000

SAFARI 2000 was an international regional science initiative developed for Southern Africa to explore, study and address linkages between land-atmosphere processes and the relationship of biogenic, pyrogenic or anthropogenic emissions and the consequences of their deposition to the functioning of the biogeophysical and biogeochemical systems of Southern Africa. This initiative was built around a number of on-going, already funded activities by NASA, the international community and African nations in the Southern African region. The SAFARI-2000 dry season campaign took place in August-September 2000 in South Africa, Zambia, Namibia and nearby countries. AATS-14 flew on the UW CV-580 and measured aerosols and water vapor.
