Abstract. The statistics and dynamics of the atmospheric seeing at the South Pole have been studied over a period of 101 days in
winter. These measurements have been made with the first fully autonomous differential image motion monitor, the A-DIMM.
The analysis shows an average seeing of 1.9 with a standard deviation of 0.6 . The extensive set of data has allowed the study
