Abstract:
As a continuation of various active ongoing programmes of ground-based planetary observations, many promising research developments can be anuclpated from planetary obsewations with the VLT, especially in the near-infrared range. The use of adaptive optics will be essential to reach the full capabilities of the VLT, buth for imaging and for spectroscopy.
