Abstract
Session4 (Applications of optical turbulence observations and custom forecasting in telescope astronomy.)
Title'Climatology of Sierra Negra'
AbstractSierra Negra, one of the highest peaks in central Mexico, is the site of the Large Millimeter Telescope as it combines high altitude (4600m) and extremely low atmospheric water content.
Here we report on one aspect of a campaign initiated in 2000 to investigate the astronomical potential of the site in the optical/infrared. We describe for the first time a comprehensive analysis of the weather data measured in situ from October 2000 to December 2006 to be used as a reference for future activity in the site.
