The second phase of the Small Main-belt Asteroid Spectroscopic Survey (SMASSII) produced an internally consistent set of visible-wavelength charge-coupled device (CCD) spectra for 1447 asteroids (Bus and Binzel 2002, Icarus, ). These data provide a basis for developing a new asteroid taxonomy that utilizes more of the information contained in CCD spectra. Here we construct a classification system that builds on the robust framework provided by existing asteroid taxonomies. In particular, we… Expand
Phase II of the Small Main-Belt Asteroid Spectroscopic Survey: The Observations
Abstract We present visible-wavelength (0.435–0.925 μm) spectroscopic measurements for 1341 main-belt asteroids observed during the second phase of the Small Main-belt Asteroid Spectroscopic SurveyExpand
Two new V-type asteroids in the outer Main Belt?
Abstract The identification of basaltic asteroids in the asteroid Main Belt and the description of their surface mineralogy is necessary to understand the diversity in the collection of basalticExpand
SDSS-based taxonomic classification and orbital distribution of main belt asteroids
Aims. The present paper aims to derive a new classification scheme for SDSS MOC asteroid colors that is compatible with previous taxonomies based on spectroscopic data. The distribution of these canExpand
Spectroscopic survey of M-type asteroids
Abstract M-type asteroids, as defined in the Tholen taxonomy (Tholen, D.J. [1984]. Asteroid Taxonomy from Cluster Analysis of Photometry. Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Arizona, Tucson), areExpand
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 theExpand
The compositional diversity of non-Vesta basaltic asteroids
Abstract We present near-infrared (0.78–2.45 µm) reflectance spectra for nine middle and outer main belt ( a > 2.5 AU) basaltic asteroids. Three of these objects are spectrally distinct from allExpand
An extension of the Bus asteroid taxonomy into the near-infrared
TLDR
An asteroid taxonomy classification system based on reflectance spectrum characteristics for 371 asteroids measured over the wavelength range 0.45 to 2.45 μm is presented and nearly all of the Bus taxonomy classes are preserved, with one new class (Sv). Expand
Spectral characterization of V-type asteroids - II. A statistical analysis
In recent years several small basaltic V-type asteroids have been identified all around the main belt. Most of them are members of the Vesta dynamical family, but an increasingly large number appearExpand
Characterization of V-type asteroids orbiting in the middle and outer main belt
We present new spectral observations using ground-based telescopes of 23 putative V-type asteroids, selected according to colour surveys in the visible from the Moving Objects Catalogue of theExpand
Taxonomic classification of asteroids using future Gaia data
The payload of the Gaia space probe includes detectors (Blue Photometer: BP and Red Photometer: RP) designed to obtain spectro-photometric data from blue to red (from 330 to 1050 nm). Asteroid dataExpand
