Short summary
Here we present the use of GPS tropospheric zenith path delays combined with METEOSAT-10 water vapor (WV) and surface temperature pixel intensity values in order to obtain absolute integrated water vapor map distribution. The results show good agreement between the suggested strategies compared with available radiosonde precipitable water vapor absolute values. This can provide unprecedented WV temporal and special distribution, which can be used as accurate initial conditions in weather models.
