Paper Abstract

SAGE III has been selected as part of the earth observing system for flight on the aerosol and chemistry satellites missions beginning in the year 2000. During lunar and solar occultation, SAGE III will measure vertical profiles of O3, NO2, H2O, NO3, OClO, temperature, and aerosols from cloud tops through the stratosphere, and of O3 through the mesosphere. This paper describes the lineage of SAGE III, its science objectives, current instrument design, details of phase B testing and analysis, expected performance, and its contributions to monitoring global change and to meeting other EOS objectives.
