Images of the Lunar Limb and Heterogeneity Layers in the Troposphere

  • A. N. Demidova


In an earlier paper [1], we considered, among other things, the displacement of large sections of images of the solar limb and the height of the atmospheric layers that cause this phenomenon. Since the vibrations were estimated visually with the eyepiece grid, we dealt with near-maximum amplitudes. It was shown that the upper limit of atmospheric heterogeneities that were capable of causing displacement as a unit of large sections of an image of the solar limb (with a chord of about 9’) was at an altitude on the order of 100 m.
