Short summary
Vertical profiles of the atmospheric water vapor mixing ratio are retrieved with an algorithm based on the combination of measurements from a wind profiler radar and radiosoundings at a coarser time resolution. The major advance with respect to previous works is the use of the radar capacity to detect transition levels, such as the top level of the boundary layer, marked by a maximum in the radar reflectivity.
