Improvements of the TCWV algorithm have reduced the uncertainties in the products. The main changes are related to a more accurate description of the vertical temperature profile, provided by ERA-interim data files. The OLCI-like TCWV algorithm, considering 2 channels within the rst-H2O absorption band has been developed and tested by applying MODIS data.
