Optical turbulence, occurring mostly in the planetary boundary layer (PBL), degrades geodetic data. Site characterisation requires knowledge of the vertical distribution of optical turbulence, the CN2 profile. A CN2 profile, obtained by employing a database of turbulence-resolving simulations, is compared with an observational profile.
