Atmospheric turbulence below 300 meters has been probed with an Echosondel acoustic sounder at the Mauna Kea, Hawaii observatory. Continuous hourly averages for several months yield "characteristic" site profiles of Cn2 and Cn2 with altitude as well as the diurnal signatures. Near surface acoustic turbulence soundings are compared to the results of observations using microthermal probes at the NOAA Boulder Atmospheric Observatory in Colorado and at Mt. Livermore near McDonald Observatory in Texas.
