WIND HORIZONTAL MAPS (FOR LINC-NIRVANA)

Wind horizontal map extended on a 60km x 60km square centered on LBT (represented with a black dot) calculated at 7.1 km above the LBT coordinates, i.e. the conjugation height of the second DM of LINC-NIRVANA at zenith (Fig.1), 30° (Fig.2) and 60° (Fig.3) with respect to zenith.
In Fig.1-3 an animation, with a temporal evolution of 1-hour steps in the [dusk,dawn] time frame is shown. In Fig.4-6 the wind speed average over the dusk-dawn time frame is shown.
The black iso-lines represent the heights of the Digital Elevation Model (DEM). Arrow directions represent local wind direction, while color scale and arrow length (the scale is portrayed on top right) represents the wind speed.

IMPORTANT: The wind speed seen by the detector (and shown in the figures) is v=v•cos(γ) where γ is the zenithal angle.
