cycle balance At any given time, the total amount of water vapor in the atmospheric column is represented by the precipitable water: where q is the specific humidity and π represents the atmospheric mass, which is the surface pressure divided by gravity: π = p s / g . The tendency of precipitable water between successive model output times may be calculated via Precipitable water tendency has both a natural and a model component, the latter a result of model biases, spinup, and reinitializing
