A five year (1988-1992) total and layered global water vapor data set on 1 degree by 1 degree grids. This set is derived from radiosonde observations, TOVS and SSMI data. Precipitable water content (PWC), layered PWC and cloud liquid water path (LWP) are the main products with supplemental products of each data source. The cloud LWP is over global oceans only. Daily, monthly, yearly and 5-day averaged grids are available.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
