Abstract
From 10 to 19 July 1990, the Naval Postgraduate School Atmospheric Optics Group acquired atmospheric optical turbulence measurements at the 13-inch Lowell Observatory astrographic telescope dome on Anderson Mesa, 16 km southeast of Flagstaff, Arizona. This collection of transverse coherence lengths and isoplanatic angles was the last in a three part Anderson Mesa site-survey measurement set for a large-scale, ground-based, synthetic aperture system (100- 300 m baseline stellar interferometer). The intent of this report is to compile, analyze and summarize the acquired optical data, as well as correlate the meteorological and optical conditions present during the data acquisitions
