This talk is about multi-view imaging via complex participating media, particularly
the 3D volumetric scattering, turbulent atmosphere and the water-air interface. Camera multi-views
look down from outer-space, airplanes, or up from Earth. Multiple views on scales of 10 or 100s of
kilometers can lead to passive estimation of 3D distributions in these natural uncontrolled
environments. The multiview setup provides easy and new solutions to seamingly complex problems, as
demonstrated in field experiments.
