The general objective of the GlobVapour project is to support user requirements for a long, homogenous time series of satellite borne global water vapour measurements - in more detail:

  • The development of multi-annual global water vapour data sets inclusive error estimates based on carefully calibrated and inter-calibrated radiances.
  • The validation of the water vapour products against ground based, airborne and other satellite based measurements taking into account the individual error structures of the individual observations as far as possible.
  • The provision of a first assessment of the quality of five different IASI water vapour profile algorithms developed by the project contractors and outside groups.
  • The provision of a complete processing system that can further strengthen operational production of the developed products.
  • The demonstration of the usage of the products in the field of climate modelling, also applying alternative ways of climate model validation using forward radiation operators.
  • The promotion of the strategy of data set construction and the data sets to the global scientific and operational community.
