Paper Abstract

We demonstrate that by using the remote turbulence profiling method of scintillation detection and ranging (SCIDAR) one is able to determine both the optical strength of turbulence and the velocity of the turbulent layers, as a function of altitude. The technique of generalized SCIDAR, which allows low level turbulence to be characterized, is also outlined and demonstrated. Preliminary results obtained from SCIDAR observing runs at La Palma, Canary Is., are discussed.
