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 globalwater vapour measurements by performing the following activities:

  • Developingand delivering a multi-annual global water vapour datasets that have thepotential to be sustained into the future using data from operational European satellites, such as the GMES Sentinels;
  • Validating and intercomparing theGlobVapour water vapour products against ground based, airborne and othersatellite based measurements;
  • Providing the global user community with free andeasy access to the GlobVapour products;
  • Demonstrating the utility of theGlobVapour products.
