Poster 48: Faizah Siddique – Measuring the Transparency of the Atmosphere Using Data from Telescope Array

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Douglas Bergman

My project focuses on attempting to make a measurement of atmospheric transparency using starlight data from the Telescope Array project. I create extinction curves of starlight over time, and I study these plots by fitting them to different exponential models. I make exponential fits based on Rayleigh and aerosol scattering models.
