anomaly (mm), (b) moisture transport by divergence of anomalous winds (mm [day.
Gaustad, "Retrieving liquid water path and precipitable water
vapor from the atmospheric radiation measurement (ARM) microwave radiometers," IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, Vol.
1996, GPS meteorology: Direct estimation of the absolute value of precipitable water
The amount of precipitable water
vapour, W, usually changes only slightly during a 24-h period and has a good correlation with surface humidity parameters.
1997) discussed the determination of atmospheric precipitable water
vapour content (PWVC) using the CIMEL[TM] sunphotometer and the associated errors.
The integrated precipitable water
vapor (IPW), or depth of liquid water that would result if all water vapor in a vertical column of the atmosphere is condensed, is then calculated from the ZWD.
Disc 1 contains monthly mean normalized difference vegetation index, precipitable water
index, calibrated albedos from AVHRR channels 1 and 2, calibrated temperatures from AVHRR channels 4 and 5, and standard deviations of tile same parameters.
This makes physical sense because rainfall intensity is higher in the tropics due to the higher temperature, higher saturation vapour pressure, and higher precipitable water
content in the atmosphere.
The 14 receivers will be deployed in Yanqing District and Miyun District of Beijing, where two major water reservoirs are located, to detect precipitable water
vapor in the atmosphere above the area and improve weather forecast service to the public.
Large-scale phenomena such as El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO; with its associated North Atlantic high pressure) modify sea surface temperatures (SSTs) and precipitable water
in the Caribbean.
For that, precipitable water
was evaluated using surface water vapour pressure, [e.
cloud motion winds, vertical profiles of humidity and temperature, total precipitable water
, sea surface temperature over Indian Ocean, outgoing radiation etc.
