Physical properties of asteroid surfaces 1: Introduction to asteroid UV-VIS-NIR spectrometry
Series: XXVIII Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics: Solar System Exploration
Topic: Physical Properties of Asteroid Surfaces
Lecture 1: Introduction to asteroid UV-VIS-NIR spectrometry
In this first talk, Dr. Muinonen gives an introduction to polarimetry, photometry, and spectropolarimetry techniques and their application to the study of asteroid surfaces. The talk includes a description of the Shkuratov radiative transfer model and the use of Monte Carlo simulations to model radiative transfer for meteorite spectra.
