A preliminary study of the precipitable water vapour (PWV) content above the observatories in Sierra Nevada, the southernmost high altitude location in continental Europe with a dry climate, indicates that Sierra Nevada is a very competitive location for FIR-submm observations, with a 25% quartile of PWV=2.3 mm(H2O) as compared with 2.1 mm(H2O) for Mauna Kea.
