Abstract

A study is made of the astroclimatic conditions for performing nighttime astrophysical observations on the territory of the Greater Altai region. Nighttime data from both the VIIRS radiometer of the Suomi NPP satellite platform and the AIRS hyperspectrometer of the Aqua satellite are used. Topographic and astroclimatic criteria show that the Chuya steppe region (Altai Republic, Russia) and the plateau of Lake Khubsugul (Aimak Khuvsgel, Mongolia) are best suited for the deployment a full-scale gamma astronomy experiment. Infrastructure considerations make the territory in the western part of the Chuya steppe preferable.
