As reported in AR4, observations from radiosonde and GPS measurements over land, and satellite measurements over ocean indicate increases in tropospheric water vapour at near-global spatial scales which are consistent with the observed increase in atmospheric temperature over the last several decades. Tropospheric water vapour plays an important role in regulating the energy balance of the surface and TOA, provides a key feedback mechanism and is essential to the formation of clouds and precipitation.
