Understanding the atmospheric distribution of water (H 2 O) is crucial for global warming studies and climate change mitigation. In this context, reliable satellite data are extremely valuable for their global and continuous coverage, once their quality has been assessed. Short-wavelength infrared spectra are acquired by the Thermal And Near-infrared Sensor(More)
Spatial and temporal variability of atmospheric water vapor (H 2 O) is extremely high, and therefore it is difficult to accurately evaluate the measurement precision of H 2 O data by a simple comparison between the data derived from two different instruments. We determined the measurement precisions of column-averaged dry-air mole fractions of H 2 O (XH 2(More)
