SAGE III-M3M Level 2
Entry Title: SAGE III Meteor-3M L2 Solar Event Species Profiles (HDF-EOS) V004

Entry ID: g3assp_4
Aerosols
Description

g3assp_4 is the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment III (SAGE III) on the Meteor-3M (M-3M) platform (SAGE III/M3M) Level 2 Solar Event Species Profiles (HDF-EOS) Version 4 data product. It contains all the species products for a single solar event. SAGE III obtains profile measurements of aerosol extinction, ozone, water vapor, nitrogen dioxide, nitrogen trioxide, chlorine dioxide, clouds, temperature and pressure in the mesosphere, stratosphere, and upper troposphere with a vertical resolution of 0.5 - 1 km resolution. SAGE III was a fourth generation, satellite-borne instrument and a crucial element in NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) . The instrument was launched on the Russian M-3M spacecraft in December 2001. The M-3M and SAGE III missions were terminated on March 6, 2006, because of a power supply system failure resulting in loss of communication with the satellite. The newest SAGE mission, SAGE III on ISS, was launched in 2017.
