Description

The Latin American Giant Observatory (LAGO) is an extended Cosmic Rays observatory composed by a network of Water Cherenkov Detectors (WCDs) spread over Latin America. This work will report the analysis of three years of data from three LAGO WCD located in Cerro Chacaltaya, Bolivia, at 5200 m a.s.l. Background cosmic ray rate from these detectors is checked for DAQ issues and inconsistencies, and corrected for atmospheric effects. An analysis for short transients up to the minute timescale is performed, in search for coincidence with transients observed by satellites. Sidereal and solar long term epoch data analysis are also presented.
