SAFARI 2000 Estimated BVOC Emissions for Southern African Land Cover Types

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).
