Two Micro-Pulse Lidar (MPL) systems were deployed to Africa for the SAFARI 2000 experiment. One MPL was set up in Mongu, Zambia, and the other was set up in Skukuza, South Africa. The primary focus of MPL work during SAFARI was to study the vertical distribution and optical properties of smoke from biomass burning in the region.
