G-VAP data archive

Terms of use

The G-VAP data archive contains harmonised water vapour data records of different origin. The individual data records were projected onto a common regular 2° by 2° lat/lon grid and the common periods 1988-2008 (TCWV), 1988-2009 (specific humidity, temperature), as well as 2003-2008 (again TCWV, but for a larger set of data records). The individual data records have been processed during G-VAP’s first phase, i.e. between 2012 and 2017. Please note that:

  • Some of the data records may be outdated by now.
  • Regridding has impacted the original variability.
  • Individual data records differ in terms of spatial and temporal sampling, coverage, and masks applied.

Access to the G-VAP data archive is granted under the following conditions:

  1. The G-VAP data archive is freely distributed for non-commercial scientific use.
  2. The G-VAP data archive shall only be obtained from the G-VAP online repository.
