Short summary
A new microwave satellite water vapour retrieval method for use in the Arctic winter has been developed that uses auxiliary information for atmospheric conditions. When compared to ground-based measurements, the new retrieval has a smaller root mean square deviation than other satellite measurement techniques and can produce high-resolution pan-Arctic water vapour column maps.
