PRPS MT1 SAPHIR V06 represents an advance over the PRPS MT1 SAPHIR V05 retrievals through a larger (Long-term) observational database together with constraining the retrievals by the total  precipitable water and 2m temperature (similar to GPROF), resulting in an improvement in estimates in dry regions.
