SAGE III Ozone Loss and Validation Experiment (SOLVE II) Quick-Look DataEntry ID: NASA_SOLVE2
Abstract: The SAGE III Ozone Loss and Validation Experiment (SOLVE II) is a
measurement campaign designed to examine the processes controlling
ozone levels at mid- to high latitudes. Measurements will be made in
the Arctic high-latitude region in winter using the NASA DC-8
aircraft, as well as balloon platforms and ground-based
instruments. The mission will also acquire ... correlative data needed to
validate the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE) III
satellite measurements that will be used to quantitatively assess
high-latitude ozone loss. SOLVE is co-sponsored by the Upper
Atmosphere Research Program (UARP), Atmospheric Effects of Aviation
Project (AEAP), Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling and Analysis Program
(ACMAP), and Earth Observing System (EOS) of NASA's Earth Science
Enterprise (ESE) as part of the validation program for the SAGE III
instrument. The SOLVE II mission will be conducted from Kiruna,
Some of the SOLVE II Quick-Look data include:
- ozone Lidar measurements.
- POAM III daily ozone, NO2, and water vapor contours
- POAM III polar stratospheric cloud (PSC) data, and daily polar vortex
- Airborne DIAL data
- Stratospheric aerosol lidar measurements at Nyalesund, Sweeden

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: The original attributes provided with the original
digital file could not be tested for accuracy, but are believed to be accurate.
All attributes created during the editing process were verified by displaying
the lines in both the database and the spatial coverage.
LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: These data are believed to be logically ... consistent,
though no tests were performed. Line geometry is topologically clean.
COMPLETENESS REPORT: The boundary of the Reserve is dependent on the shoreline
and/or edges of rivers and bays as delineated on a USGS 7.5 minute Topographic
Map. The edges or borders of the boundary might change as the natural land
changes or better maps and aerial photography become available. The boundary
was not based on legal parcels or definitions; therefore, the core boundary is
a management/research boundary not a legal boundary.
HORIZONTAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY REPORT: These data were created by delineating
the boundaries off USGS 7.5 minute Topographic Maps at 1:24000 scale.
Therefore, the horizontal accuracy is assumed to be within National Map
Accuracy Standards, with a horizontal accuracy of 45.6 feet at the 95%
VERTICAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY REPORT: These data were delineated off USGS 7.5
minute Topographic Maps at 1:24000 scale. Therefore, the vertical accuracy is
assumed to be within National Map Accuracy Standards, with a vertical accuracy
of 11.9 feet at the 95% confidence level.
PROCESS DESCRIPTION: The upper boundary, from the US Fish and Wildlife Service,
was imported into ARC/INFO as a coverage from an ARC/INFO export file. The
lower boundary was imported into ARC/INFO from an ARCVIEW shapefile. The
coverages were appended together to form one boundary file. The coverage was
then edited to delete extra parts of the boundary file located in the northern
part of the file. The Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) provided
comments as to how to edit the file down to just the Wells Reserve. The
corrections were made by on-screen digitizing with a USGS topographic map as
the backdrop. Once the corrections were done, the new boundary was printed on a
USGS topographic map and sent to the Reserve for verification. The Reserve had
additional changes that were sent back to the Coastal Services Center and
incorporated into the boundary coverage. Each arc of the boundary file was
coded to reflect the change made and the source and confidence of that change.
The coverage was then projected to the final projection used by the individual
Reserve. PROCESS DATE: 19980909
