Moisture transport pathways and processes over the subtropical North Atlantic and Africa are investigated based on a combination of remote sensing observations and model simulations of the isotopic composition of atmospheric water vapour. In this way, it will be evaluated if such isotope observations can serve as additional constraints on the representation of the subtropical water cycle in numerical models.
