Water vapor is a well-known trace gas. Despite its low concentration in the atmosphere, it has a paramount importance in many processes like the hydrological cycle, energy transportation or greenhouse effect. For instance, it is main natural contributor to the greenhouse effect, being one of the main absorbers of infrared radiation from the Earth, part of which is emitted back to the Earth’s surface. Moreover, water vapor varies widely at different scales in the spatial and temporal domains, and therefore it is difficult to study and needs continuous monitoring through different kinds of instrumentation. There is no single instrument able to catch all the variation of the water vapor fields, and therefore the use of coincident data-sets is very valuable in the study of this gas.
We present a Special Issue of the journal Atmosphere titled Research on Atmospheric Water Vapor: Monitoring and Characteristics. This Special Issue aims to present the state-of-the-art in topics related to any water vapor instrumentation (radiosondes, microwave radiometers, photometers, global navigation satellite systems, and so on) and their validation, as well as studies on spatio-temporal analysis, trend analysis, and the study of the water vapor cycle at different time scales. It also covers studies using numerical weather prediction models, assimilation experiments, and the study of the radiative effects of water vapor.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
