Lidar Atmopheric Sensing Experiment (LASE) Data Obtained During the SAGE III Ozone Loss and Validation Experiment (SOLVE)

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

LASE_SOLVE data are Lidar Atmospheric Sensing Experiment water vapor and aerosol data measurements taken during SAGE III Ozone Loss and Validation Experiment (SOLVE).The LASE SOLVE field experiment was conducted in the Arctic during November 1999 to March 2000 with the scientists based above the Arctic Circle at the airport in Kiruna, Sweden. Measurements of stratospheric composition over the Arctic were made using a large suite of instruments aboard several European aircraft, as well as on NASA's DC-8 and ER-2 aircraft. Balloons and ground-based instruments also took atmospheric readings. Scientists also gathered ozone-related data to use in validating measurements by the SAGE III instrument aboard the Russian Meteor-3 satellite. LASE (Lidar Atmospheric Sensing Experiment) airborne lidar produces measurements of aerosols and water vapor vertical profiles from the aircraft altitude (6-8 km) down to the surface.The SAGE III Ozone Loss and Validation Experiment (SOLVE) was a measurement campaign designed to examine the processes which control polar to mid-latitude stratospheric ozone levels. The results of SOLVE will be both to expand understanding polar ozone processes and to provide greater confidence in ozone monitoring capabilities.
