Abstract
As part of a program to measure and evaluate atmospheric turbulence on mountains at the most northerly tip of North America, we have deployed two SODARs and a lunar scintillometer at the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Lab (PEARL) located on a 600m-high ridge near Eureka on Ellesmere Island, at 80° latitude. This paper discusses the program and presents a summary of ground-layer turbulence and seeing measurements from the 2009-10 observing season.
