Abstract: 
We describe the structure and resources of the combined database developed from the measurements of the SAGE II mission from October 1984 till April 2000 at four wavelengths: 386, 452, 525, and 1020 nm. For the database, human-friendly interface is elaborated and three levels are created. The zeroth level of the database contains some data on vertical profiles of concentrations for ozone, water vapour, nitrogen dioxide and aerosol at the four wavelengths mentioned above. The first level provides a possibility of data searching, filtrating and visual analyzing, sorting the data by certain criteria and describing these criteria. The second level keeps some information on climate models and normal (standard) parameters, namely, spectral behaviour of season variations, variations of season trend and long-term variations. Besides, the possibility exists of attaching additional data on aerosol indexes which are obtained from measurements of TOMS-OMI satellites and of adding new data from Data Centres. We give some examples demonstrating possibilities of the database
Keywords: aerosol, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, the combined database, vertical profiles, water vapour
