Abstract: We undertake a first attempt towards a consistent reconstruction of thecoronal magnetic field and the coronal density structure. We consider astationary solar corona which has to obey the equations of magnetohydrostatics.We solve these equations with help of a newly developed optimization scheme. Asa first step we illustrate how tomographic information can be included into thereconstruction of coronal magnetic fields. In a second step we use coronalmagnetic field information to improve the tomographic inversion process. Asinput the scheme requires magnetic field measurements on the photosphere fromvector-magnetographs and the line-of-sight integrated density distribution fromcoronagraphs. We test our codes with well known analytic magnetohydrostaticequilibria and models. The program is planed for use within the STEREO mission.
