Abstract

Time series of precipitable water vapor (PWV) and 212 GHz atmospheric optical depth were obtained in CASLEO (Complejo Astronomic El Leoncito), at El Leoncito site, Argentinean Andes, for the period of 2011-2013. The 212 GHz atmospheric optical depth data were derived from measurements by the Solar Submillimeter Telescope (SST) and the PWV data were obtained by the AERONET CASLEO station. The correlation between PWV and 212 GHz optical depth was analyzed for the whole period, when both parameters were simultaneously available. A very significant correlation was observed. Similar correlation was found when data were analyzed year by year. The results indicate that the correlation of PWV versus 212 GHz optical depth could be used as an indirect estimation method for PWV, when direct measurements are not available. (AU)
