  • Amount of water vapor in the air, as a percentage of the maximum amount of water vapor the air can hold at that temperature.

  • Greater over the oceans and least over the continents.

  • Air containing moisture to its full capacity is saturated

  • People are usually comfortable at 45-percent relative humidity.
