Much of what we know about the structure, dynamics, and evolution of globular clusters derives from their observed density profiles, and their interpretations. In this review, I will briefly describe the problems and techniques specific to the surface photometry of globular clusters, show some new results, and offer suggestions for future ground-based work.

Additional Information:© 1988 IAU. I would like to thank to my good collaborators, on whose work most of this review was based, and in particular Ivan King, Abe Oren, Howard Penner, and Carl Vuosalo. The data for our work were obtained at Cerro Tololo and Lick observatories, whose staff provided invaluable help in numerous observing runs. Discussions with David Chernoff, Haldan Cohn, Jeremy Goodman, Josh Grindlay, Piet Hut, Shogo Inagaki, Phylis Lugger, Georges Meylan, and many others were most valuable and stimulating. Partial support from Harvard University is also gratefully acknowledged.
