Estimation of the integrated water vapor above Maidanak observatory
The molecules of water in the atmosphere absorb electromagnetic radiation in some spectral lines. They cause significant weakening of starlight intensity during the red and infrared-range astronomical observations. In spite of overall dry conditions of Maidanak, the night-time variations of the Integrated Water Vapor (IWV) are very important, because taking this effect of atmospheric extinction into account gives much benefit to precise photometry of celestial objects.
