Plain Language Summary: Quality control of radiosonde humidity data was performed for the data obtained in the international field campaign called the Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC) - Boreal Summer Monsoon study in 2018. This was done based on the intercomparison between two radiosonde types. We also used precipitable water vapor data derived from Global Navigation Satellite System signals for assessment. In addition, we proposed a method to determine whether our correction procedures can be applied to other data or not.
