SHOW is a Spatial Heterodyne Spectrometer designed to vertically resolve water profiles from limb scattered sunlight in the upper troposphere - lower stratosphere region of the atmosphere. Studying water profiles is critical to understanding its impact on climate. The instrument successfully flew over Ontario (Canada) on September 19th 2014 at 35 km float altitude. We present an overview of the instrument and preliminary flight data results.
