Resumen:
The energy scale of the Pierre Auger Observatory is derived from fluorescence observations of extensiveair showers, an intrinsically calorimetric technique. Taking advantage of more precise measurements of thefluorescence yield, of a deeper understanding of the detector and consequently improved event reconstruction andof a better estimate of the invisible energy, we present an update of the method used to determine the energy scale.Differences in energy with respect to earlier measurements and the systematic uncertainties associated with thenew energy scale are discussed.
