Abstract
The High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) is a wide field-of-view gamma-ray observatory sensitive to gamma-rays in the 300 GeV - 100 TeV energy range, located in Mexico at an altitude of 4,100 m above sea level. The detector consists of 300 Water Cherenkov Detectors with a volume of 200,000 l each, having a footprint of 22,000 $m^2$, a duty cycle of >95% and a field of view (FoV) of 2sr. In this work we present a general data quality Inspection of HAWC data for the years between 2014 and 2017 and also for two specific data periods selected on the base that GRB 150416A and GRB 160301A detected by Fermi LAT occurred within the HAWC FoV, allowing to search for them in the HAWC data.
