Short summary
The water vapor expedition experiment was operated in the Tibetan Plateau during July and August 2014, by using water vapor, cloud, and aerosol lidar. During the observations, water vapor mixing ratio at high elevation was obtained. The validation of water vapor mixing ratio was completed by comparing the lidar measurements to radiosonde data. Finally, with the vertical wind speed, the vertical flux of water vapor is calculated and the upwelling and deposition of the water vapor are monitored.
