Abstract
SAGE II water vapor measurements covering the period (1986 - 1991) have been used to examine the time-periodic variations of water vapor in the stratosphere and the upper troposphere. The results represent an extension of our previous studies which were based on the observations from the first three years (1986 - 88). A statistical model containing quasi- biennial, seasonal, semi-annual oscillations, and a linear component was fit to the time series of monthly zonal mean water vapor mixing ratio. A preliminary comparison with the newly released UARS/MLS water vapor data set is also discussed here.
