[1] Diurnal variations in atmospheric water vapor are studied by analyzing 30-min-averaged data of atmospheric precipitable water (PW) for 1996–2000 derived from Global Position System (GPS) observations from 54 North America stations. Vertical structures in the diurnal cycle of atmospheric water vapor are examined using 3-hourly radiosonde data from Lamont, Oklahoma, during the 1994–2000 period. Significant diurnal variations of PW are found over most of the stations. The diurnal (24 hour… CONTINUE READING
