SATELLITE OBSERVATIONS OF VARIABILITY OF PRECIPITABLE WATER OVER ARABIAN SEA

Abstract
Study of atmospheric water vapor content is important to understand the climate of a region. The atmospheric
radiation and thereby the atmospheric thermal equilibrium is influenced by the amount of water vapor in the
atmosphere. It also affects the earth’s climate.The Total Precipitable Water (TPW) is the quantity of water vapor
present along the column of air which later, is responsible for precipitation. The amount of TPW in the atmosphere
can be measured using various techniques. Space based monitoring of atmospheric water vapor is a highly effective
method.Remote sensing provides a very valuable tool in observing and evaluating the atmospheric moisture
variability over the whole globe with good amount of accuracy. Moreover, the difference in the absorption
characteristics of water vapor in the different spectral regions makes its study important in atmospheric remote
sensing as well as in astronomical observations. The present study attempts to provide an overview of how the
atmospheric precipitable water varies over the Arabian sea with seasons and years. It is found that there are
significant variabilities observed in the amount of precipitable water found over the region. This has potential
applications in understanding the climatic variability of India, especially over the west coast of India. Further
detailed analysis is necessary to bring out accurate inferences for the same.

Key words: precipitable water vapor, satellite remote sensing, MODIS
