Abstract : A study of various fields relating to water vapor flow in the atmosphere over the northern hemisphere during the IGY covering the mean conditions for two semester seasons and for the calendar year 1958 is presented. The study includes also analyses of the amount of precipitable water, of the vertically integrated water vapor transport and of the divergence of water vapor transport for the hemisphere. Zonal averages of various important quantities are presented in tabular form. (Author)
