We show how standard tomographic techniques may be applied to study the three dimensional structure of stellar jets. To achieve this, we invert observed emission maps, and determine the physical parameters from the line ratios. For the first time this technique is applied to the HH30 jet, showing that the jet is denser and more fragmented than what can be inferred when deducing the physical parameters directly from the observed emission maps.
