Short summary
Long-term monitoring of the amount of water vapour in the lower atmosphere is essential for climate studies. We analysed satellite observations, at hundreds of locations in Central and South America, to look for changes in this parameter over several years. We found evidence of drying of the troposphere in temperate regions, and also evidence of slow moistening over the tropics. Moreover, we openly provide the complete data collection to the scientific community.
