Welcome to the SPARC WAVAS II Workshop on Satellite Data Quality Assessment
Water vapor is the most potent greenhouse gas; its evolution in the stratosphere, however, is still not well understood. Numerous satellite data records are available to date; however, there seems to be a wide spread among the data records regarding the absolute numbers of water vapor mixing ratios and their temporal and spatial variation.
The "Satellite Data Quality Assessment" activity within WAVAS II has the goal to provide a review on the available water vapor data records and an inter-comparison among the more recent measurements and reprocessed improved data records from previous instruments.
The December 2015 workshop is the third meeting after the workshop at KIT, Karlsruhe, in December 2014 and at JPL, Pasadena, in December 2013.
This time, the workshop will focus on writing the report and related discussions.
The workshop will be held on December 8-11 (Tuesday to Friday) at David Skaggs Research Centre, NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory, 325 Broadway, Room GB124 , Boulder, CO, 80305, USA.
