Space-Based Thermal Infrared Studies of Asteroids
Large-area surveys operating at mid-infrared wavelengths have proven to be a valuable means of discovering and characterizing minor planets. Through the use of radiometric models, it is possible to
Observed asteroid surface area in the thermal infrared
The rapid accumulation of thermal infrared observations and shape models of asteroids has led to increased interest in thermophysical modeling. Most of these infrared observations are unresolved. We
Thermophysical Modeling of NEOWISE Observations of DESTINY+ Targets Phaethon and 2005 UD
Thermophysical models allow for improved constraints on the physical and thermal surface properties of asteroids beyond what can be inferred from more simple thermal modeling, provided a sufficient
Physical Properties of 299 NEOs Manually Recovered in Over Five Years of NEOWISE Survey Data
TLDR
Using the population of known near-Earth objects, a manual search is conducted for detections of these objects that were previously unreported and demonstrate the importance and benefit of periodic searches of the archival NEOWISE data.
NEOWISE Observations of the Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (99942) Apophis
Large potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs) are capable of causing a global catastrophe in the event of a planetary collision. Thus, rapid assessment of such an object’s physical characteristics is
Asteroid Diameters and Albedos from NEOWISE Reactivation Mission Years Six and Seven
We present diameters and albedos computed for the near-Earth and main belt asteroids (MBAs) observed by the Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) spacecraft during the sixth
NEOWISE Reactivation Mission Year Two: Asteroid Diameters and Albedos
The Near-Earth Object Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) mission continues to detect, track, and characterize minor planets. We present diameters and albedos calculated from observations
Response to Wright et al. 2018: Even more serious problems with NEOWISE
Wright et al. 2018 (W2018) responded to certain criticisms of the NEOWISE results raised by Myhrvold (2018a, 2018b) in a preprint submitted for publication to Icarus. This paper responds to W2018 and

Surface Properties of Asteroids from Mid-Infrared Observations and Thermophysical Modeling
The subject of this work is the physical characterization of asteroids, focusing on the thermal inertia of near-Earth asteroids (NEAs). Thermal inertia governs the Yarkovsky effect, a
Radiometry of asteroids
Measurements of the thermal emission of asteroids can be used to derive albedos and diameters and to infer information on thermophysical properties of the upper layer of asteroid surfaces.
Thermal Model Calibration for Minor Planets Observed with WISE/NEOWISE
With the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE; Wright et al. 2010), we have observed over 157,000 minor planets (Mainzer et al. 2011). Included in these are a number of near-Earth objects, Main

Comparing the NEATM with a Rotating, Cratered Thermophysical Asteroid Model
A cratered asteroid acts somewhat like a retroflector, sending light and infrared radiation back toward the Sun, while thermal inertia in a rotating asteroid causes the infrared radiation to peak
