About the Edition

The Naval Postgraduate School Atmospheric Optics Group acquired atmospheric optical turbulence and navaid radiosonde (rawinsonde) data in the Flagstaff, Arizona region part of a site survey for a large-scale, ground-based, synthetic aperture system (100-300 m baseline stellar interferometer). From 17 to 25 September 1989, measurements were taken from the Lowell Observatory 31- inch telescope dome facility on Anderson Mesa, 16 km southeast of Flagstaff. Further sampling occurred 26-28 September 1989 from the United States Naval Observatory"s (USNO) 61-inch telescope dome, approximately 8 km west of Flagstaff. The parameters measured consisted of transverse coherence lengths, isoplanatic angles, and various meteorological surface and upper-air variables measured from a high resolution, instrumented balloon (rawinsonde) system. This report compiles, analyses and summarizes the acquired data. A summary of the synoptic scale activities occurring simultaneously over the data acquisition sites is also presented.
