We present revised near-infrared albedo fits of 2835 main-belt asteroids observed by WISE/NEOWISE over the course of its fully cryogenic survey in 2010. These fits are derived from reflected-light near-infrared images taken simultaneously with thermal emission measurements, allowing for more accurate measurements of the near-infrared albedos than is possible for visible albedo measurements. Because our sample requires reflected light measurements, it undersamples small, low-albedo asteroids, as… 
NEAR-INFRARED SPECTRA OF HIGH-ALBEDO OUTER MAIN-BELT ASTEROIDS
Most outer main-belt asteroids have low albedos because of their carbonaceouslike bodies. However, infrared satellite surveys have revealed that some asteroids have high albedos, which may suggest
Sizes and albedos of Mars-crossing asteroids from WISE/NEOWISE data
Context. Mars-crossing asteroids (MCs) are a dynamically unstable group between the main belt and the near-Earth populations. Characterising the physical properties of a large sample of MCs can help
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
Asteroids in GALEX: Near-ultraviolet photometry of the major taxonomic groups
We present ultraviolet (UV) photometry (near-UV (NUV) band, 180–280 nm) of 405 asteroids observed serendipitously by GALEX from 2003 to 2012. All asteroids in this sample were detected by GALEX at
Thermophysical Modeling of 20 Themis Family Asteroids with WISE/NEOWISE Observations
Themis family is one of the largest and oldest asteroid populations in the main belt. Water ice may widely exist on the parent body (24) Themis. In this work, we employ the Advanced Thermophysical
The AKARI IRC asteroid flux catalogue: updated diameters and albedos
The AKARI IRC All-sky survey provided more than twenty thousand thermal infrared observations of over five thousand asteroids. Diameters and albedos were obtained by fitting an empirically calibrated
AKARI/IRC near-infrared asteroid spectroscopic survey: AcuA-spec
Knowledge of water in the solar system is important for understanding of a wide range of evolutionary processes and the thermal history of the solar system. To explore the existence of water in the
THE EUPHROSYNE FAMILY’S CONTRIBUTION TO THE LOW ALBEDO NEAR-EARTH ASTEROIDS
The Euphrosyne asteroid family is uniquely situated at high inclination in the outer Main Belt, bisected by the &ngr; 6 ?> secular resonance. This large, low albedo family may thus be an important
