ST WV Sources and Transport of Water Vapor : 5-year Science Review

Abstract : The overarching aim of this Science Team (ST-WV) is to contribute to study of the multiscale interaction between ambient flow and deep convection that governed the heavy precipitation events (HPEs) observed during the first HyMeX Special Observing Period (SOP) through Cross-validation studies and synergistic use of SOP observations and models in order to provide the best description of the water vapour flows. Three main objectives are pursued: (i) Produce error and bias estimates for the water vapour profiles and integrated products issued from the different water vapour measuring instruments, (ii) Provide a reference for validation of water vapor fields from model forecasts & reanalyses, and (iii) Contribute to HPE related processes studies. The instrumental cross-validation and model validation efforts, as well as recent progress on the understanding of the role of water vapor on the life cycle of HPEs will be presented.
