13 September 2012 Quantitative solar system science with AO systems
Author Affiliations +
Adaptive Optics systems, today available on 8-10m class telescopes are playing a significant role in the study of our solar system bodies. We describe three main science cases i) small solar system bodies ii) satellites of giant planets iii) giant planets atmospheres. We describe recent results acquired with these systems in these fields. We discuss the limitation and potential of AO systems for these studies, and address the problem of observability specific to moving targets. The potential for planetary science of future and improved AO systems is described.
