OSSOS. VII. 800+ trans-Neptunian objects - the complete data release
The Outer Solar System Origins Survey (OSSOS), a wide-field imaging program in 2013-2017 with the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, surveyed 155 deg$^{2}$ of sky to depths of $m_r = 24.1$-25.2. We
A Possible Divot in the Size Distribution of the Kuiper Belt's Scattering Objects
Via joint analysis of a calibrated telescopic survey, which found scattering Kuiper Belt objects, and models of their expected orbital distribution, we explore the scattering-object (SO) size
The 5:1 Neptune Resonance as Probed by CFEPS: Dynamics and Population
The Canada-France Ecliptic Plane Survey discovered four trans-Neptunian objects with semi-major axes near the 5:1 resonance, revealing a large and previously undetected intrinsic population. Three of
OSSOS. VIII. The Transition Between Two Size Distribution Slopes in the Scattering Disk
The scattering trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) can be measured to smaller sizes than any other distant small-body population. We use the largest sample yet obtained, 68 discoveries, primarily by the
OSSOS II: A Sharp Transition in the Absolute Magnitude Distribution of the Kuiper Belt's Scattering Population
We measure the absolute magnitude, $H$, distribution, $dN(H) \propto 10^{\alpha H}$ of the scattering Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) as a proxy for their size-frequency distribution. We show that the
OSSOS: X. How to Use a Survey Simulator: Statistical Testing of Dynamical Models Against the Real Kuiper Belt
TLDR
This chapter gives four examples of ways to use the OSSOS Survey Simulator to gain knowledge about the true structure of the Kuiper Belt, and demonstrates how to statistically compare different dynamical model outputs with real TNO discoveries, how to quantify detection biases within a TNO population, and how to measure intrinsic population sizes.
A Divot in the Size Distribution of the Kuiper Belt's Scattering Objects
We present a joint analysis of the Canada France Ecliptic Plane Survey’s scattering objects, and the Kaib et al. (2011b) orbital model, measuring the scattering objects’ size distribution. Scattering
A CAREFULLY CHARACTERIZED AND TRACKED TRANS-NEPTUNIAN SURVEY: THE SIZE DISTRIBUTION OF THE PLUTINOS AND THE NUMBER OF NEPTUNIAN TROJANS
The Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) may preserve evidence of planet building in their orbital and size-distributions. While all populations show steep size-distributions for large objects, recently
