Abstract
Some results of experimental investigations of integrated water vapor and integrated cloud liquid water content obtained in different geographical regions and meteorological conditions are presented. Uncertainty of water vapor determination is about 2 kg/m2. Radiometrically obtained mean liquid of stratocumulus compares favorably with empirical models based on airborne soundings. Observations of water vapor during thunderstorms are analyzed.
