SAFARI 2000 is an international regional science initiative being developed for Southern Africa to explore, study and address linkages between land-atmosphere processes and the relationship of biogenic, pyrogenic or anthropogenic emissions and the consequences of their deposition to the functioning of the biogeophysical and biogeochemical systems of southern Africa.

Sulfates, Clouds And Radiation - Atlantic (SCAR-A). The primary objective of SCAR-A, conducted during Summer 1993, is to help scientists characterize the relationship between sulfate particles and clouds, thereby gaining a better understanding of how sulfates affect clouds' reflective properties.
Smoke, Clouds And Radiation - Brazil (SCAR-B). The SCAR-B experiment, completed in September 1995, studies the effects of biomass burning on atmospheric processes and aids in the preparation of new techniques for remote sensing of these processes from space.
Smoke, Clouds And Radiation - California (SCAR-C). The SCAR-C field experiment, conducted in fall of 1994, utilized airborne instrument platforms to collect scientific information on the characteristics of smoke produced through biomass burning, to study the interaction of smoke aerosol with clouds, and to validate atmospheric correction algorithms.
