User consultation

GlobVapour preparatory User consultation

The German Weather Service (DWD) and ESA are organizing a user consultation meeting for GlobVapour, at the DWD headquarters in Offenbach, Germany, 27 January 2009.

The focus of the meeting will be on the latest development in satellite water vapour retrievals and their applications to climate modelling.

Water vapour is a key gas in the atmosphere that is both chemically and radiatively active.

It is the strongest greenhouse gas on the planet, and in its condensed forms as liquid and ice exert a profound influence on both incoming solar and outgoing infrared radiation, but is not directly anthropogenically produced.

The objective of the GlobVapour project is to support users' requirements for a long time series of satellite borne global water vapour measurements by performing the following activities:
