Short summary
Total column water vapor (TCWV) is retrieved from the spectra obtained by the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI). Data filtering criteria are recommended. The OMI data generally compare well with reference datasets over both land and the oceans. The data are useful for a variety of applications spanning a range of spatial and temporal scales, such as atmospheric rivers, corn sweat and El Niño.
