This plot

This plot displays PWV values from UVES and X-SHOOTER standard stars, plus from CRIRES emission line fits. It displays a closeup of the last 10 days. This format is intended to assist with operational planning based on the PWV situation. Plot #2 is a closeup of plot #1, emphasizing data values below 5 mm.

Find more information about the underlying data in the "This plot" section of the main plot ("PWV").  


General information

Click on any of the plots to see a close-up version. The latest date is indicated on top of the plot, data points belonging to that date are specially marked.

If configured,

  • statistical averages are indicated by a solid line, and thresholds by broken lines
  • outliers are marked by a red asterisk. They are defined as data points outside the threshold lines
  • "aliens" (= data points outside the plot Y limits) are marked by a red arrow ( or )
  • you can download the data for each parameter set if the 'Data downloads' link shows up
