typhon.atmosphere.iwv(vmr, p, T, z)[source]

Calculate the integrated water vapor (IWV).

Parameters:
  • vmr (ndarray) – Volume mixing ratio,
  • p (float or ndarray) – Pressue [Pa]. If type is ndarray, size must match vmr.
  • T (float or ndarray) – Temperature [K]. If type is ndarray, size must match vmr.
  • z (ndarray) – Height [m]. Size must match vmr.
Returns:

Integrated water vapor [kg/m**2].

Return type:

float
