Paper Abstract

We present some statistics of turbulence monitoring at the Plateau de Calern (France), with the Generalised Differential Image Motion Monitor (GDIMM). This instrument allows to measure integrated parameters of the atmospheric turbulence, i.e. seeing, isoplanatic angle, coherence time and outer scale, with 2 minutes time resolution. It is running routinely since November 2015 and is now fully automatic. A large dataset has been collected, leading to the first statistics of turbulence above the Plateau de Calern.
