Asteroid Thermal Inertia Estimates from Remote Infrared Observations: The Effects of Surface Roughness and Rotation Rate

The thermal inertia of an asteroid’s surface can provide insight into regolith properties, such as the presence of a layer of fine dust, the density and thermal conductivity of a rocky surface, and,

Analysis of Four-band WISE Observations of Asteroids

We analyzed 82,548 carefully curated observations of 4420 asteroids with Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) four-band data to produce estimates of diameters and infrared emissivities. We also

An Investigation of the Ranges of Validity of Asteroid Thermal Models for Near-Earth Asteroid Observations

The majority of known asteroid diameters are derived from thermal-infrared observations. Diameters are derived using asteroid thermal models that approximate their surface temperature distributions

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-belt

MAIN BELT ASTEROIDS WITH WISE/NEOWISE. I. PRELIMINARY ALBEDOS AND DIAMETERS

We present initial results from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), a four-band all-sky thermal infrared survey that produces data well suited for measuring the physical properties of

HOW TO FIND METAL-RICH ASTEROIDS

The metal content of asteroids is of great interest, not only for theories of their origins and the evolution of the solar system but, in the case of near-Earth objects (NEOs), also for impact

Comparison of Asteroids Observed in the SDSS with a Catalog of Known Asteroids

We positionally correlate asteroids from existing catalogs with a sample of $\about$18,000 asteroids detected by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS, Ivezi\'{c} {\em et al.} 2001). We find 2641 unique

A Family-based Method of Quantifying NEOWISE Diameter Errors

Quantifying the accuracy with which physical properties of asteroids can be determined from thermal modeling is critical to measuring the impact of infrared data on our understanding of asteroids.

Thermal Infrared Spectrophotometry of the Near-Earth Asteroids 2100 Ra-Shalom and 1991 EE

Abstract Thermal infrared observations of the near-Earth asteroids 2100 Ra-Shalom and 1991 EE are presented and interpreted with the aid of published asteroid thermal models. The broad wavelength
