Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE II)
Author and Affiliation:
Mcmaster, L. R.(NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA, United States)
Abstract: Design features and the performance envelope of the SAGE II stratospheric aerosol monitoring instrument on the Earth Radiation Budget Satellite are described. SAGE II was designed to obtain vertical profiles of stratospheric aerosols, monitor global seasonal changes in aerosols, provide data on stratospheric circulation and the behavior of transient events such as volcanic particulate injections, and to investigate atmospheric chemistry. The mmeasurements are centered on extinctions due to aerosols, NO2, O3 and water vapor.
