OpenMARS water vapour database

The Open access to Mars Assimilated Remote Soundings (OpenMARS) database is a reanalysis product combining past spacecraft observations with a state-of-the-art Mars Global Circulation Model (GCM). The OpenMARS product is a global surface/atmosphere reference database of key variables for multiple Mars years.

Spacecraft observations of water vapour column abundance and temperature profiles from the Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) instrument on the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft are combined with a Mars GCM used at the Open University. The database includes 2-hourly output of water vapour column abundance.

Extended details on this dataset can be found in the OpenMARS-water-reference-manual.pdf document included in this repository.
