et al. 2000 ). An initial evaluation of a reanalysis record is therefore a useful undertaking. The purpose of this study is to provide a basic overview of the quality of MERRA in polar regions. To this end we focus on the atmospheric moisture budget, which has recently been the subject of other studies. A companion paper examines the representation of the atmospheric energy budget in MERRA over high latitudes (Cullather and Bosilovich 2011, manuscript submitted to J. Climate ). The surface

1. Introduction The objective of this study is to examine the performance of the Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applications (MERRA) in representing the high-latitude atmospheric energy budget. MERRA was recently released by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO). This effort, as well as a companion paper examining the atmospheric moisture budget ( Cullather and Bosilovich 2011 ), represent an initial examination of
