|SEEING - SHORT TERM|
Seeing Statistics at Paranal since UT1 first light: monthly average (0.90", upper curve),
median (0.78", middle curve) and 5th percentile (0.43", lower curve). The dashed lines give the respective
long term (89-95) site characteristics (median=0.66", 5 percentile=0.38").
Seeing is reconstructed from DIMM measurements taken at 6m above ground, at 0.5 micron and zenith.
