Surface profile and mean circulation of the atmosphere are the key factors affecting air moisture in the Antarctic
The results give a comprehensive picture of air moisture climatology in the Antarctic and its surrounding sea areas and aid in understanding the related physical processes. The study indicated that air moisture conditions vary greatly inside the researched area.
The results are based on the most modern global reanalysis, ERA5, which manages reasonably well to close the Antarctic water budget.
