Water Vapor Assessment (WAVAS)

This webpage gives access to the WAVAS archive. The WAVAS archive includes a number of H2O data sets from international aircraft campaigns, ground-based in-situ measurements, and satellite data. Some of these data are still experimental and have not been published. Public data are available on the ftp server at /sparc/wavas. Users who want to gain access to restricted data will need to fill out a form and agree to the conditions of usage. The user will then be provided by e-mail with a user name and password to access the restricted data sets.

Further information on WAVAS including SPARC Report No. 2 can be found here.
