Short summary
The main goal of this article was to validate the total water vapour column (TWVC) measured by the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment-2 (GOME-2) satellite sensor highly accurate sounding measurements. The smallest relative differences found in this satellite-sounding comparison (below 10%) were achieved for those cloud-free cases with satellite SZA below 50º which can be considered as a good result for satellite retrievals.
