Vertical Scales of Turbulence at the Mt. Wilson Observatory
External Online Source: hdl:2014/30868
Author and Affiliation:
Treuhaft, Robert N.
Abstract: The vertical scales of turbulence at the Mt. Wilson observatory are inferred from data from the University of California at Berkeley Infrared Spatial Interferometer (ISI), by modeling path length fluctuations observed in the interferometric paths to celestial objects and those in instrumental ground- based paths. The correlations between the stellar and ground-based path length fluctuations and the temporal statistic of those fluctuations are modeled on various time scales to constrain the vertical scales.
