The asteroid lightcurve database
Abstract The compilation of a central database for asteroid lightcurve data, i.e., rotation rate and amplitude along with ancillary information such as diameter and albedo (known or estimated),Expand
A Thermal Model for Near-Earth Asteroids
Abstract It has become common practice in studies of the thermal emission from near-Earth asteroids to employ thermal models developed on the basis of infrared observations of large, main-beltExpand
Fast and Slow Rotation of Asteroids
Abstract We present an analysis of the distribution of asteroid spin rates vs. size. The existence of significant populations of both slow and fast rotators among asteroids smaller than D=40 km, andExpand
The Distance to SN 1999em in NGC 1637 from the Expanding Photosphere Method
ABSTRACT We present 30 optical spectra and 49 photometric epochs sampling the first 517 days after discovery of supernova (SN) 1999em and derive its distance through the expanding photosphere methodExpand
LSST Science Book, Version 2.0
A survey that can cover the sky in optical bands over wide fields to faint magnitudes with a fast cadence will enable many of the exciting science opportunities of the next decade. The Large SynopticExpand
Absolute magnitudes of asteroids and a revision of asteroid albedo estimates from WISE thermal observations
Abstract We obtained estimates of the Johnson V absolute magnitudes ( H ) and slope parameters ( G ) for 583 main-belt and near-Earth asteroids observed at Ondřejov and Table Mountain ObservatoryExpand
Observed spectral properties of near-Earth objects: results for population distribution, source regions, and space weathering processes
Abstract We present new visible and near-infrared spectroscopic measurements for 252 near-Earth (NEO) and Mars-crossing (MC) objects observed from 1994 through 2002 as a complement to the SmallExpand
Thermal inertia of near-Earth asteroids and implications for the magnitude of the Yarkovsky effect
Abstract Thermal inertia determines the temperature distribution over the surface of an asteroid and therefore governs the magnitude the Yarkovsky effect. The latter causes gradual drifting of theExpand
Binary asteroid population 1. Angular momentum content
Abstract We compiled a list of estimated parameters of binary systems among asteroids from near-Earth to trojan orbits. In this paper, we describe the construction of the list, and we present resultsExpand
