Short Name:

SAFARI 2000 Monthly and Annual CO2 Emissions from Soil, 0.5 Degree Grid

The data set provides estimated monthly and annual soil CO2 emissions for southern Africa (the SAFARI 2000 project region). The calculated emissions are from the respiration of both soil organisms and plant roots and are provided on a 0.5-degree grid cell basis. The data are a subset of a global data set (Raich and Potter, CDIAC 1996), reformatted and subsetted to the SAFARI region.
