WAVEFRONT COHERENCE TIME (τ0) MAPS TEMPORAL EVOLUTION

Wavefront coherence time horizontal map extended on a 50km x 50km square surface centred on LBT (represented with a black dot). The Wavefront coherence time is integrated over three different vertical slabs:
    TOTAL WAVEFRONT COHERENCE TIME (τ0,TOT) - [dome-20000]m
    BOUNDARY LAYER WAVEFRONT COHERENCE TIME (τ0,BL) - [dome-600]m
    FREE ATMOSPHERE WAVEFRONT COHERENCE TIME (τ0,FA) - [600-20000]m
The wavefront coherence time in each pixel is obtained integrating the CN2 and wind speed along the zenith and covering the temporal range [dusk,dawn]. The animations show the temporal evolution with 1-hour steps (in UT and MST). The black iso-lines represent the heights of the Digital Elevation Model (DEM).
