Water vapour information from the MIAWARA microwave radiometer

The MIAWARA (MIddle Atmospheric WAter Vapour RAdiometer) began operating from the roof of the Institute of Applied Physics in Bern in 2002. It is designed to provide longterm measurements of stratospheric and mesospheric water vapour profiles in the range of 25(20) – 80 km by measuring the microwave emission line of water vapour at 22.235 GHz.
