Short summary
A new data set of vertical column densities of the water vapour isotopologues H2O and HDO retrieved from short-wave infrared measurements (2339 nm to 2383 nm) by the SCIAMACHY satellite instrument for the whole of the mission period from 2003 to 2012 is presented. The data are validated against ground-based Fourier transform infrared measurements. High-altitude stations observe different air columns; thus in this case collocated scenes with clouds around station height are needed for agreement.
