Water vapour's interaction with light is fundamental to understanding the Earth's climate, extrasolar planets (including attempts to detect life) and the chemistry of the interstellar medium. The discussion meeting will focus on fundamental developments in the spectroscopy of water, including its continuum, its role in the Earth's energy budget, and latest astronomical observations, including those from the Herschel space telescope.
