Water Vapour in the Climate System (WAVACS) COST action: observations, processes and modelling
Water Vapour in the Climate System (WAVACS) COST action: observations, processes and modelling
Editor(s): G. Vaughan, W. Lahoz, F. Fierli, and S. Buehler
The special issue aims at collecting research papers from the WAVACS final workshop and, more in general, from the broader community involved in the action.

Main topics are:

- Water vapor time series and trends;
- Cirrus inhomogeneities and relationship to the environmental water vapor field and radiative transfer Submissions of papers dealing with broader WAVACS objectives are also encouraged:

- Accuracy of atmospheric water vapor observations and harmonization;
- Results from specific field campaign;
- Process related to water vapor isotopes;
- Regional/Global modelling and data assimilation.
