Paper Abstract

Atmospheric turbulence strength profile measurements are presented for a number of astronomical observation sites. These results were obtained using the generalised SCIDAR (SCIntillation, Distance And Ranging) technique which allows both the turbulence strength profile and the velocity of the turbulent layers to be determined as a function of height.
