英文摘要: Water vapor in the earth′s upper atmosphere plays a crucial role in the radiative balance, hydrological process, and climate change. Based on the latest moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) data, this study probes the spatio-temporal variations of global water vapor content in the past decade. It is found that overall the global water vapor content declined from 2003 to 2012 (slope b = –0.0149, R = 0.893, P = 0.0005). The decreasing trend over the ocean surface ( b = –0.0170, R = 0.908, P = 0.0003) is more explicit than that over terrestrial surface ( b = –0.0100, R = 0.782, P = 0.0070), more significant over the Northern Hemisphere ( b = –0.0175, R = 0.923, P = 0.0001) than that over the Southern Hemisphere ( b = –0.0123, R = 0.826, P = 0.0030). In addition, the...
