I am in search of MODIS L3 data for atmospheric water vapour.
But in the HDF files from the LAADS DAAC Directories -MOD08_M3 and MOD08_D3- only 'Atmospheric_Water_Vapor_Low_Mean_Mean' is found. Can you suggest any other source where I can get the profile info in L3 format
Can anyone tell me why the water vapour profile data is not given while temperature profile is given in the files. Is it due to any peculiarity of the water vapour data
Atmospheric_Water_Vapor_High - Precipitable Water Vapor (IR Retrieval) 440 to 10mb
Atmospheric_Water_Vapor_Low - Precipitable Water Vapor (IR Retrieval) Surface to 680mb
Atmospheric_Water_Vapor_Mean - Precipitable Water Vapor(IR Retrieval) Total Column
Near IR retrieval:
Water_Vapor_Near_Infrared_Clear_Mean - Water vapor near infrared - clear column
Water_Vapor_Near_Infrared_Cloud_Mean- Water vapor near infrared - cloudy column
