Water Vapor over ARM Southern Great Plains Site

Water Vapor over ARM Southern Great Plains Site

Laser technology captures continuous, vertical distributions of water vapor over the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement’s Southern Great Plains Site for the 29 November - 2 December 2002 time frame. The figure represents three measurements that are important for climate studies: (a) ratio of water vapor to dry air (CART Raman Lidar Mixing Ratio Data); (b) relative humidity (CART Raman Lidar RH Data); and (c) the total atmospheric water vapor contained in a vertical column of unit cross- sectional area extending from the surface to the top of the atmosphere (precipitable water vapor).
