Abstract
Session1 (Instrumentation and observations to quantify the magnitude and distribution of atmospheric optical turbulence.)
Title'The TMT MASS System: Characterization and Application'
AbstractThe Thirty Meter Telescope site testing campaign uses a combined MASS-DIMM device for turbulence monitoring. In order to investigate the reliability of the MASS device, we have conducted numerous tests on the impact of the various instrument parameters on the turbulence data produced by the MASS. These tests and their results will be presented, as well as the results of a side by side comparison of two MASS devices, demonstrating the precision of the MASS system. Finally, some MASS data from the TMT site testing network in northern Chile will be presented in view of the possibility of seeing forecasting.
