The work is aimed at the improvement of the model of a turbulent atmosphere at the Large Solar Vacuum Telescope site using the analysis of the energy turbulence spectrum in a wide range of frequencies and deformations of the vertical profile of the structure parameter of the refractive index of air in the atmospheric boundary layer (up to 1 km), depending on the energy of the surface turbulence.

Some results were obtained using the Large Solar Vacuum Telescope ( with funding of Basic Research program II.16. The analysis of the structural features of optical turbulence was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (project no. 18-35-00033). Optical and acoustic measurements were financially supported by the Russian Science Foundation (grant no. 17-79-20 077).
