Gobabeb Training and Research Center-Science In The Sand-
The Desert Research Foundation of Namibia lies at the foot of the vast dunes of the Namib Desert. The station has been collaborating with Namibia’s Ministry of Environment and Tourism for over 50 years collecting data about carbon levels and temperature increases that provide vital data for scientists and climate experts world wide on our climate. At over fifty-five million years old, the Namib Desert is world’s oldest steady-state ecosystems. At this station, researchers have been piecing together climate history, and are extrapolating our climactic future.
