European Water Vapour Column Maps from NOAA-ATOVS

Temperature and dewpoint temperature profiles are calculated from ATOVS sensor onboard NOAA-14/-16 for the field of view of DLR’s NOAA antenna.

Total water vapour column is derived after integration of these profiles. This site presents example images of total water vapour column distributions. Please note: the near real time processing service stopped end of 2005.

Further information on level 2 products (temperature profile, dewpoint temperature profile, total water vapour column) can be found on the ATOVS sensor page here.

Further information on NOAA satellites can be found here.
