Atmospheric Optics and Astronomy

Concepts, techniques and technologies

OPTICON planning meeting – FP7 22 June 2006

site characterisation under opticon fp6
Site Characterisation under OPTICON-FP6
  • NA2 – WP2:
      • Complete Site Characterisation
        • Co-ordination of night-time and day-time seeing measurements
        • Joint actions for meteorology, dust extinction, sky background, measurement of turbulence and wind vertical profiles
        • Distribution and discussion of results and participation at the scientific forums
      • 10 OPTICON members (+LUAN)
      • Budget: 300 k€ for the period 2004-2008
        • http://www.otri.iac.es/na2
        • http://www.otri.iac.es/sitesting/principal/
    • FP6-ELT Design Study. WP on Site Selection
    • (OWL-ELT – Working Group on Site Selection. ESO)
atmospheric optics and astronomy
Atmospheric Optics and Astronomy
  • Proliferation of techniques, procedures and parameters
      • No easy comparison among different sites of interest for astronomy and techniques
    • It is necessary to agree on parameters and techniques
    • It is necessary to know the statistical behaviour of these parameters
        • Crucial for ELT, but not only for that.
general objectives
General Objectives
  • Normalization of parameters and observational techniques
  • Criteria for the standardization of systematic measurement campaigns
  • Scientific EU forum to think about parameters, techniques and standarisation
    • Some minor experiments and tests
    • To work for the international agreement on these standard techniques
some potential specific work packages
Some potential specific work-packages
  • Viability and validation of satellite measurements (and ground-based remote sensing measurements)
      • Parameters and satellites !
        • Cross-calibration with on-site measurements.
    • The best techniques for the best parameters
  • Techniques for the measurement of the Outer Scale (Lo)
  • More portable techniques for agreed measurements
  • Systematic measurements of turbulence and wind profiles in top sites, …
