1308.0473 (Daniel Garrido et al.)

Atmospheric Aerosols at the MAGIC Site    [PDF]

Daniel Garrido, Markus Gaug, Michele Doro, Lluís Font, Alicia López-Oramas, Abelardo Moralejo, for the MAGIC collaboration
We investigate the performance of the MAGIC telescopes under three simulated atmospheric conditions: an increased aerosol content in the lower part of the troposphere, the presence of thin aerosol over-densities at different heights, and an extremely clean atmosphere. Weshow how the effective area of the telescope system is gradually reduced in the presence of varying concentrations of aerosols whereas the energy threshold rises. Clouds at different heights produce energy and altitude-dependent effects on the performance of the system.
