Abstract

Methods are described and results are presented for sensing the columnar content of atmospheric water vapor via differential solar transmission measurements in, and adjacent, to the 0. 94- mu m water-vapor absorption band. Calibration and measurement techniques are discussed for obtaining the water-vapor transmission from the radiometer measurements. Models are also presented for retrieving the columnar water-vapor amount from the estimated transmission. Example retrievals are given for radiometer measurements made during the 1986 Arizona monsoon season to track temporal variations in columnar water vapor amount.
