Short summary
Satellite-to-satellite occultations near 22 and 183 GHz water absorption lines promise to profile the atmosphere with unprecedented performance needed for forecasting weather and climate. We describe measurements made with a prototype instrument between mountaintops during a thunderstorm that determined water vapor to better than 1 %, even when cloud and rain attenuated the signals. The precision and dynamic range far exceeded present instruments and are similar to theoretical expectations.
