Abstract Data from eight stellar occultations by Neptune between 1984 and 1988 are analyzed to set limits on the optical depths of the continuous Adams and Le Verrier Rings, and to search for previously unidentified occultations by the arcs in the Adams Ring. We employ the approach introduced by Sicardy et al . (1991), Icarus 89, 220-243) and convert the raw lightcurves to radial profiles of equivalent width E ( r ), the fraction of incident starlight removed by ring material at normal… CONTINUE READING
