The NEOWISE data set offers the opportunity to study the variations in albedo for asteroid classification schemes based on visible and near-infrared observations for a large sample of minor planets. We have determined the albedos for nearly 1900 asteroids classified by the Tholen, Bus, and Bus–DeMeo taxonomic classification schemes. We find that the S-complex spans a broad range of bright albedos, partially overlapping the low albedo C-complex at small sizes. As expected, the X-complex covers a… 

NEOWISE STUDIES OF ASTEROIDS WITH SLOAN PHOTOMETRY: PRELIMINARY RESULTS

We have combined the NEOWISE and Sloan Digital Sky Survey data to study the albedos of 24,353 asteroids with candidate taxonomic classifications derived using Sloan photometry. We find a wide range

MAIN-BELT ASTEROIDS WITH WISE/NEOWISE: NEAR-INFRARED ALBEDOS

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

A REVISED ASTEROID POLARIZATION–ALBEDO RELATIONSHIP USING WISE/NEOWISE DATA

We present a reanalysis of the relationship between asteroid albedo and polarization properties using the albedos derived from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer. We find that the function that

Follow-up observations for the Asteroid Catalog using AKARI Spectroscopic Observations

In the 1-2.5 micron range, spectroscopic observations are made on the AcuA-spec asteroids, whose spectra were obtained in a continuous covered mode between 2.5-5.0 micron by AKARI. Based on the

Taxonomic classification of asteroids based on MOVIS near-infrared colors

Context. The MOVIS catalog contains the largest set of near-infrared (NIR) colors for solar system objects. These data were obtained from the observations performed by VISTA-VHS survey using the Y,

The nature of bright C-complex asteroids

Most C-complex asteroids have albedo values less than 0.1, but there are some high-albedo (bright) C-complex asteroids with albedo values exceeding 0.1. To reveal the nature and origin of bright

The small binary asteroid ( 939 )

In understanding the composition and internal structure of asteroids, their density is perhaps the most diagnostic qua ntity. We aim here to characterize the surface composition, mutual orbit , size,

NEOWISE OBSERVATIONS OF NEAR-EARTH OBJECTS: PRELIMINARY RESULTS

With the NEOWISE portion of the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) project, we have carried out a highly uniform survey of the near-Earth object (NEO) population at thermal infrared

CHARACTERIZING SUBPOPULATIONS WITHIN THE NEAR-EARTH OBJECTS WITH NEOWISE: PRELIMINARY RESULTS

We present the preliminary results of an analysis of the sub-populations within the near-Earth asteroids, including the Atens, Apollos, Amors, and those that are considered potentially hazardous

Small Main-Belt Asteroid Spectroscopic Survey in the Near-Infrared

Abstract Near-infrared spectra (∼0.90 to ∼1.65 μm) are presented for 181 main-belt asteroids, more than half having diameters less than 20 km. These spectra were measured using a specialized grism at

Small main-belt asteroid spectroscopic survey: Initial results

The spectral characterization of small asteroids is important for understanding the evolution of their compositional and mineralogical properties. We report the results of a CCD spectroscopic survey
