very long baseline interferometry


very long baseline interferometry
Radio Astron.
an interferometry technique that enhances angular resolution in the observation of radio signals from distant celestial objects, as quasars, by combining signals from several radio telescopes around the earth or such signals with those from an earth-orbiting satellite. Abbr.: VLBI
