A subsequent step then reads the intermediate file, calculates all the derived values (solar, relative humidity, precipitable moisture, etc), and produces the processed historical year weather files.
However, in fact, many other factors besides solar radiation, such as latitude, altitude, cloudiness, humidity, wind speed, precipitable water, aerosol, and proximity to a large body of water, can influence [DELTA]T in a given location [11, 16].
Monthly wind stress, surface and upper wind, wind vorticity, sea level air pressure (SLP), surface temperature (Ts), latent heat flux (evaporation), specific humidity, and precipitable water are obtained from the coupled forecast system (hereafter, CFS [44]).

The scattering of solar radiation by water molecules is a function of the amount of precipitable water (i.e., the amount of water vapor in the air column above the observation site) and an empirical scattering coefficient for water vapor that varies as [[lambda].sup.-2] has been proposed.
La recuperacion del vapor de agua troposferico via GPS puede ser vista de dos formas (Bevis et al., 1992): como vapor de agua integrado (IWV), es decir, masa de vapor de agua presente por unidad de area expresado en kg-[m.sup.-2], o bien como vapor de agua precipitable (PW), siendo este la altura de la columna de agua eauivalente, expresado en mm.
(1999) showed that precipitable water (PW) anomalies were an important characteristic in identifying heavy rainfall events during the great Midwest floods of 1993 (e.g., the majority of heavy rain events were associated with PW values greater than an inch above the norm).
(5,6) Its disadvantage is that variations in solar ultraviolet type B (UVB) due to changes in the thickness of the ozone layer, daily variations in cloud cover, rain, aerosol content of the air, precipitable water and season are not accounted for.
5g of lignocellulose or APPL 9 (Acid Precipitable polymeric lignin) was taken in a 500ml flask and added with 10ml of concentrated Sulphuric Acid and it was kept as such for one hour with occasional stirring.
