dc.description.abstract Occultation measurements from the Global Positioning System (GPS) should improve upon this situation. Individual occultations yield profiles of specific humidity accurate to 0.2 to 0.5 g/kg providing sensitive measurements of lower and middle tropospheric water vapor with global coverage in a unique, all-weather, limb-viewing geometry with several hundred metres to a kilometre vertical resolution. The authors have derived water vapor profiles from June 21 to July 4, 1995 en_US
