Stable isotopes in atmospheric water vapor and applications to the hydrologic cycle

Editors’ Highlight—

This manuscript presents an up-to-date overview of stable isotopes in atmospheric water vapor, with an array of applications in studies of the hydrological cycle. Stable isotopes are gaining increasing interest in such studies, and the present study will be both an extremely useful benchmark of the state of the art in such applications, and a critical springboard for further developments, which are likely to come from novel in-situ measurements and remote sensing, as well as advanced modelling.
