Keywords:astroclimate, turbulence, transparency windows, atmospheric absorption, precipitated water, radio range, millimeter wave, Neper
The results of measurements of atmospheric absorption and the amount of precipitated water on the Suffa Plateau for the period from January, 2015 to November, 2020, are presented. The measurements of atmospheric parameters in the 2 and 3 mm range of the radio waves spectrum were carried out using the MIAP-2 radiometer. The results of more than six years of measurements have show that on the Suffa Plateau, atmospheric parameters in the above range remain fairly stable. The median value of the atmospheric absorption and the amount of precipitated water over the entire observation period were 0.14 and 0.12 Nep and 5.91 and 9.83 mm, respectively, for the ranges of 2 and 3 mm.
