HAO engineer Damon Burke and Senior Scientist Steve Tomczyk are shown in front of a suite of remote observing instrumentation at the Marshall Field site. These instruments will support the COSMO Observatory site survey project (COSADA), a 3 year project to determine scientifically optimal locations for the construction of HAO's proposed COSMO Solar Observatory. This suite of instrumentation will be deployed and operated for approximately 2 years in order to measure atmospheric conditions critical to the operation of a pair of coronagraph telescopes, such as aerosol content, sky brightness, cloud cover, and atmospheric stability. For further information, please contact COSADA Principal Investigator, Dr. Steve Tomczyk.
