Paper Abstract

Optical turbulence measurements have been performed at North Oscura Peak, White Sands Missile Range using a variety of precision instruments. A commercially available sodar system is used to collect atmospheric profiles, which are calibrated with fine-wire probes to calculate the optical index of refraction structure parameter, Cn2, from a height of 15 meters to around 160 meters above the ground.
