Global Climatology of Tropospheric Precipitable Water
Entry ID: NOAA_ARL_PRECIPITABLE_WATER

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: [Summary Adapted from the NOAA/ARL home page]

The global climatology of tropospheric precipitable water is based on
radiosonde data for the 23 year period, 1973-1995. The climatological
variables are the mean precipitable water in several layers, the
standard deviations of these monthly means and the average
within-month standard deviations. Also recorded are the number of
years of data and the ... View entire text
