Habitability is defined by Cockell et al. in, "Habitability: A Review", as 'the ability of an environment to support the activity of at least one known organism'. Water is an important factor, as it is the medium of survival for life as we know it. Humidity measurements alone are not reliable indicators of habitability, as, while they give information about the presence of water as a whole in a substrate, they cannot elucidate if an environment is chemically suitable for microbes to thrive.
