Both institutes, the Royal Observatory of Belgium (ROB) and the Royal Meteorological Institute (RMI) of Belgium, are monitoring and studying the atmospheric water vapour using several ground-based (GNSS), satellite-based (GOME,SCHIAMACHY, GOME-2, AIRS), and in-situ (radiosonde) measuring techniques but also atmospheric models (ERA-interim, ALARO). These activities mainly aim at improving weather f ... More

Ground-based microwave remote sensing is extremely useful for monitoring the atmospheric composition and physical properties. It is effective during both daytime and nighttime, in clear sky or mild overcast weather, and is therefore particularly suited for observing the Polar regions where darkness (or direct sunlight) lasts throughout an entire winter (summer) season. Most techniques in this freq ... More

Atmospheric water vapor is an important constituent of the global hydrological cycle; it transports humidity and heat and it is the most important greenhouse gas. While over open ocean total precipitable water vapor (PW) is routinely surveyed with satellite microwave imagers like SSMI(S) and AMSR-E/2, large-scale observations in polar regions with low water vapor burden are much more difficult be ...
