MLO_CN2: Mauna Loa Seeing Study (Cn-squared study)


Sonic anemometers were deployed during Summer 2006 at the Mauna Loa Observatory, Hawaii to quantify the atmospheric seeing quality, to help NCAR/HAO plan current and future telescope observations. This study was intended to replicate measurements made previously for planning the Advanced Technology Solar Telescope (ATST). Deployment and operations for this study were done by HAO staff, and ISFF provided equipment and some data management support.
