Short summary
We present a two-step retrieval that provides a continuous time series of water vapour profiles from ground-based remote sensing in a straightforward way to offer a broad application. The retrieval combines the Raman lidar mass mixing ratio and the microwave radiometer brightness temperature. Its application results in reliable water vapour profiles and error estimates also from within and above a cloud during all non-precipitating conditions.
