Short summary
In this study the quality of the total precipitable water (TPW) retrieved from the newly released AERONET version 3 algorithm is assessed, through comparison with independent measurements of the TPW from a microwave radiometer and radiosondes at a station in southeastern Europe. The findings show that there are improvements in the estimation of TPW in version 3 compared to version 2 of the algorithm.
In this study the quality of the total precipitable water (TPW) retrieved from the newly...
