Paper Abstract

As part of the conceptual and preliminary design processes of the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), the ELT site-testing team at Morocco has spent the last two years measuring the atmospheric properties at Aklim site as another 4 candidate mountains in North and South hemisphere, Aklim is the per-selected site for the ELT, is located in Moroccan Anti-Atlas at the geographic coordinates 30°7'39" N, 08°18'39" W. In this paper we present the isoplanatic angle θ0 and the isopistonic angle θp, measurements at Aklim site, statistics of the mentioned parameters are obtained from the whole data recorded from April 2008 to December 2009 using the Multi Aperture Scintillation Sensor (MASS) - Differential Image Motion Monitor (DIMM) system, more representative results and statistics are shown hereafter.
