The Stratospheric Aerosol and gas Experiment III (SAGE III) is part of the NASA EOS program designed for long term monitoring of atmospheric ozone and aerosol, together with other atmospheric species important to the study of global change. SAGE III is an advanced version of the previous occultation instruments such as SAM II, SAGE I, and SAGE II which have provided long term data on aerosol and ozone for the last twenty years. SAGE III will continue these long term measurements well into the first decade of the 21st century. SAGE III will measure profiles of aerosols, ozone, water vapor, nitrogen dioxide, temperature, pressure, chlorine dioxide, and nitrogen trioxide using the solar and lunar occultation techniques. Currently two SAGE III instruments will be launched between 1999 and 2003. The First SAGE III will be on a Russian Meteor 3M spacecraft to be launched in the Fall of 1999. The second SAGE III will be on the Space Station in 2003.
