The amount of water-vapour present in the air has considerable importance at radio frequencies greater than 10 GHz, both in respect of the attenuation and thermal sky-noise emission which it produces. The statistical distribution of atmospheric water vapour, as derived from 10 years of data collected at London's Heathrow Airport, is described, together with how the spread of the statistical distribution is limited if a restricted range of air temperatures to be expected can be specified.
