The Southern African Regional Research Initiative (SAFARI 2000) was an International project that strove to make connections between land and atmosphere interactions and processes. SAFARI 2000 took place from 1999 to 2001 during the wet and dry seasons of Southern Africa. A host of aircraft, including NASA’s ER-2, the University of Washington’s CV-580 and the South African Weather Service’s Aerocommander, were used to collect in-situ aerosol data from varying levels of the atmosphere. In addition to aircraft data, in-situ data were also collected at a number of field sites located throughout the southern portion of the African continent. SAFARI 2000 was primarily funded by NASA’s EOS, Land Cover and Land Use Change, and Terrestrial Ecology programs.
