Abstract

SCISAT-1, the Atmospheric Chemistry Experiment, will use the solar occultation technique to make measurements of trace gases, atmospheric extinction, temperature, and pressure in the stratosphere and upper troposphere. The accuracy and reliability of the ACE results will be demonstrated through a validation program including ground-, balloon-, and satellite-based observations. This program will be ongoing throughout the lifetime of the mission. To provide sufficient global coverage, a worldwide group of participants will be collaborating with the ACE Validation team. Descriptions and locations of the validation experiments are given.
