Abstract

The 150-km optical path between the astronomical observatories of Izaña on Tenerife and Roque de Los Muchachos on La Palma provides an optimum scenario for on-ground tests of optical communication systems for intersatellite communications. We present calculations of the effects of Saharan dust invasions—one of the most significant disturbances in this region–on the optical attenuation in the 780–880-nm spectral band.
