Abstract / Description:Results of monitoring optical-turbulence
profiles and velocity of the turbulence layers at
San Pedro Mártir, Mexico, are presented. The data
were collected during 11 nights in April-May 1997
and 16 nights in May 2000 using the Generalized
Scidar of Nice University installed on the 1.5-m
and 2.1-m telescopes. The statistical analysis of
the 6414 turbulence profiles obtained shows that
the seeing produced by the turbulence in the
first 1.2 km, not including dome seeing, at the
1.5-m and the 2.1-m telescopes have median values
of 0 to z 0. hss'' 63 and 0 to z 0. hss'' 44,
respectively. The dome seeing at those telescopes
have median values of 0 to z 0. hss'' 64 and 0 to
z 0. hss'' 31. The turbulence above 1.2 km and in
the whole atmosphere produces seeing with median
values of 0 to z 0. hss'' 38 and 0 to z 0. hss''
71. The temporal correlation of the turbulence
strength drops to 50
