Paper Abstract

We study seasonal variations of the vertical distribution of wind speed at the Baikal Astrophysical Observatory (BAO) using NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis data base for development of adaptive optical system of Large Solar Vacuum Telescope (LSVT). The statistics of wind speed including mean and median profile, the first and third quartiles are calculated. Also we analyzed seasonal variations of wind speed on the pressure level 200-mbar, as parameter for estimation of suitable of the site for adaptive optics and level of atmospheric optical turbulence.
