Welcome to Stable Water Vapor Isotopes Database

Hosted by Yale University and sponsored by the U. S. National Science Foundation, the Stable Water Vapor Isotope Database (SWVID) website archives high-frequency vapor isotope data collected with instruments based on infrared isotopic spectroscopy. The goal of this centralized data depository is to facilitate investigation that transcends disciplinary and geographic boundaries.
