Paper Abstract

The stringent and specific requirements associated with visible aperture synthesis projects call for a sound engineering effort in the design and development phase to assess the instrumental performance. An important area of effort concerns the influence of the natural or man-made environmental factors on the global performance of the interferometer. This paper discusses the major environmental factors affecting the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) and presents the results of a number of studies aimed at evaluating the effects of such environmental factors.
