The work is aimed at the improvement of the model of turbulent atmosphere at the Large Solar Vacuum Telescope site using the analysis of the energy turbulence spectrum in a wide range of frequencies and deformations of the vertical profile of the structure characteristic of the air refraction index in the atmospheric boundary layer (up to 1 km) depending on the surface turbulence energy.
