[Short Summary]    (click here to refer to Summary Page)
Site map of Site Monitoring in west China,
starting in 2007 to the present.
Gar (5036m) and ZoZo Hill(4619m),
possibly better sites in Ali area, Tibet
Comparison of Clear Sky Ratio at Karasu, Oma, Gar/Ali in Tibet, OAO (Japan), Subaru Telescope/Hawaii Haleakala/Maui/Hawaii, and Chajnantor/Chile
( click here to D/L in pdf )
    When avilability on usage of telescope is limited under wind speed less than 14m/sec, the ratio of ClearSky is down to nearly the same level at OAO (Okayama, Japan), terribly!
Weather monitoring at Oma during Jan 2009 to Jun 2009.
Weather monitoring at Gar during Jan 2013 to Jun 2013.
Vertical Wind Speed Profile, simulated w/WRF at Gar and ZoZo Hill
Vertical Wind Speed profiles around midnight are shown at site locations A1, B1 at Gar. and ZoZo Hill added with high peaks #1 and #2 near ZoZo Hill.
Wind speed profiles around midnight in Jan,2010, in which high speeds are shown in upper atmosphere layers.
