Safari 2000 Tropospheric Ozone

The fires that raged across southern Africa in August and September of 2000 produced a thick 'river of smoke' that observers compared with the aftermath of the Kuwaiti oil fires in 1991. NASA-supported studies currently underway on the event will contribute to improved air pollution policies in the region and a better understanding of its impact on climate change.
