Astronomical site quality in the sub-millimetric and millimetric bands at Dome C, Antarctica
IASF-sezione di Bologna, CNR/INAF, v. P. Gobetti 101, 40129 Bologna, Italy
The high Antarctic plateau is considered as the best observing site on Earth in the sub-mm and mm bands. Dome C is one of the most elevated all-year-round station in this continent. Due to its peculiar location, it is also characterized by low wind speeds and very low precipitable water vapor contents. Some experiments have been brought there since 1995 and some ancillary data have been recorded. We report here the actual status of the site quality knowledge in the sub-mm and mm bands.
