How does the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere at any one time compare to the total flux of water vapor through the atmosphere each year?

  • Earth Science -

    It ought to be the same, shouldn't it?

  • Earth Science -

    That is what I thought, but I wasn't sure. Wouldn't the amount of water vapor in the air vary at different times throughout the year and depend on location, the time of year and the air temperature (among other factors)? But overall it is fairly constant?
    Thanks again!
