The 2-year lidar water vapor database (November 2013 - October 2015) of the Maïdo Observatory (Reunion Island / 21°S,55.5°E) is now processed. The performances of the lidar in providing accurate vertical structures are shown to be good. The ability to measure quantities of a few ppmv in the lower stratosphere is demonstrated (based on Cryogenic Frost point Hygrometer sonde/lidar profiles comparisons) for a 48-hour integration time period, up to 22 km (with a vertical resolution of 1.3 km).
