BLS Scintillometer

The Boundary Layer Scintillometer BLS optically measures atmospheric turbulence, heat flux and crosswind over spatial scales up to 5 kilometres. The spatial averaging results in significant advantages over conventional point measuring.

Description

The Boundary Layer Scintillometer BLS optically measures atmospheric turbulence, heat flux and crosswind over spatial scales up to 5 kilometres. The spatial averaging results in significant advantages over conventional point measuring.

With its proprietary technique, this large aperture scintillometer sets a new standard in accuracy and ease of set-up. By accounting for transmission changes, the BLS is capable of measuring even in unfavourable and varying seeing conditions. The measured data are stored in a Signal Processing Unit and read by a PC either in real time or from memory. The BLS is fully weather resistant and supports battery operation.
