The ALTA Center is a project aiming at forecasting automatically and nightly the optical turbulence and other integrated astroclimatic parameters as well as atmospheric parameters relevant for ground-based astronomical observations, mainly supported by Adaptive Optics systems. The project has been conceived for the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) located at Mt.Graham, Arizona, US.

The project is lead by INAF - Arcetri Astrophysical Observatory.
