CM SAF Microwave Upper Tropospheric Humidity (UTH) Data Record - Edition 1

Christoforos Tsamalis, Rob King, Lizzie Good, Viju John, Rainer Hollmann, Nathalie Selbach, Johannes Kaiser & Martin Werscheck
This CM SAF climate data record provides daily estimates of Upper Tropospheric Humidity (UTH) derived from passive microwave sounders. UTH contributes significantly to the atmospheric greenhouse effect by having a strong influence on the outgoing longwave radiation, despite the smaller concentration by mass in comparison to lower troposphere. Long-term observations of UTH can therefore be used to monitor changes in upper tropospheric water vapour loading and subsequently to infer changes in the radiative effect of...
