Abstract

We report on new millimetric continuum observations of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) made from the Italian Base in Antarctica with a 2.6 metre diameter telescope. The telescope scanned two strips at constant declinations -69deg and -69.16deg across the entire source with an angular resolution of 5 arcminutes. The comparison of the mm wavelength observations with radio, CO and FIR measurements suggests that most of the observed mm emission is thermal and can be associated with very cold dust present in the molecular clouds of this Galaxy. The dust properties inferred from these observations are briefly discussed.
