Short summary
An obstacle in achieving reliable satellite measurements of atmospheric water vapour in the Arctic is the presence of sea ice. Here we have built on a previous method that achieves consistent atmospheric measurements over sea-ice-covered regions. The main focus was to adapt the method for better coverage in shallow-ice-covered and ice-free areas by accounting for the signal from the open-ocean surface. This approach extends the coverage from the central Arctic to the entire Arctic region.
