Abstract
By the simultaneous observation of the atmospheric wavefront of a number of adjacent objects in the sky it appears possible to determine the atmospheric wavefront distortion in 3 dimensions using tomography techniques. Once obtained it becomes then possible to correct the atmospheric wavefront distortions in detail using adaptive optics at the conjugates of a number of atmospheric layers.
