The Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE III) is the fourth generation of solar occultation instruments designed to measure aerosols and trace gas species in the stratosphere and upper troposphere. It is scheduled to be launched aboard a Meteor-3M platform in the summer of 1998 and the International Space Station Alpha in 2001. SAGE III preserves the robust characteristics of the SAGE series, including self-calibration and high vertical resolution, and adds new capabilities including a lunar occultation mode. This paper describes the SAGE III instrument and outlines its potential contribution to global change research.
