WATER vapour in the atmosphere is the key trace gas controlling weather and climate, and plays a central role in atmospheric chemistry, influencing the heterogeneous chemical reactions that destroy stratospheric ozone. Although in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere the radiative1 and chemical2 effects of water vapour are large, there are few measurements of water-vapour concentration3–10 and its long-term variation11–13 in this region. Here we present a set of water-vapour profiles… CONTINUE READING
