KAGRA is the kilometer scale and ground based Gravitational Wave Detector in Japan. There are two characteristics, underground and cryogenic environment. The O4a observation was performed in May and June, 2023.
For O4a run, various studies about the effect on the mesoscale meteorology to GW detector were performed. Mesoscale meteorology is the study of weather phenomena that occur on a medium scale, typically ranging from tens to hundreds of kilometers in size.
In my presentation, characterization of the weather around KAGRA detector, relationship between GW detection range and component of the weather (temperature, humidity, wind speed and so on) would be reported.
