SAGE III/ISS L2 Monthly Solar Event Species Profiles (NetCDF) V053

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

g3bsmnc_53 is the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment III (SAGE III) on the International Space Station (ISS) (SAGE III/ISS) Level 2 Monthly Solar Event Species Profiles (NetCDF) V053 data product. It contains all of the species products for a month of solar events (the last day of each month is omitted) . SAGE III was Launched on February 19, 2017 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 from Kennedy Space Center, SAGE III-ISS is the second instrument from the SAGE III project, externally mounted on the ISS. This ISS-based instrument uses a technique known as occultation, which involves looking at the light from the Sun or Moon as it passes through Earth's atmosphere at the edge, or limb, of the planet to provide long-term monitoring of ozone vertical profiles of the stratosphere and mesosphere. The data provided by SAGE III-ISS includes key components of atmospheric composition and their long-term variability, focusing on the study of aerosols, chlorine dioxide, clouds, nitrogen dioxide, nitrogen trioxide, pressure and temperature, and water vapor. SAGE data has historically been used by the World Meteorological Organization to inform their periodic assessments of ozone depletion. These new observations from the International Space Station will continue the SAGE team's contributions to ongoing scientific understanding of the Earth's atmosphere.
