The water Cherenkov detector array (WCDA), sub-array of Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory (LHAASO), is highly sensitive to VHE gamma-ray and is dedicated to surveying the northern sky (100GeV to 30TeV). In this work, the TeV gamma ray emission in Mrk421 is monitored over period from 2019 July to 2020 February with the first detector array of WCDA. The significance and excess over background of this source are measured within this period and compared with the observation by the satellite-borne experiment Fermi in the GeV range. The evolution of the spectral energy distribution is also investigated by measuring spectral indices at two different flux levels.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
