CAR mission Skukuza measured bidirectional reflection functions over different natural surfaces and ecosystems in southern Africa. The measurements were conducted to characterize surface anisotropy in support of the CAR SAFARI mission and to validate products from NASA's Earth Observing System satellites.

This data set consists of observations made with the CAR instrument and includes values for bidirectional reflectance factor at varying spectral bands.
