Atmospheric Total Water Vapor over ice and open ocean

This data set merges the precipitable water vapour content from the microwave imager AMSR-E/2 over open water and from the microwave sounder AMSU-B and MHS over ice, creating an Arctic-wide daily dataset of 50 km resolution with seamless coverage from the high Arctic to mid latitudes from 2002 to date. Quality control and error margins tbd.
