Abstract
This paper addresses the problem of measuring dynamical masses, metallicity, dust content and star formation rates of high redshift galaxies using large 8-10m class ground based telescopes and, in particular, the 8m VLT unit telescopes. The theoretical basis of the various methods and their limitations are also briefly reviewed.
