  • Abstract Here we report a comparison between reflectance spectroscopy of meteorites under asteroidal environment (high vacuum and temperature) and Main Belt and Near Earth Asteroids spectra. Focusing on the –OH absorption feature around 3 μm, we show that the asteroidal environment induces a reduction of depth and width of the band, as well as a shift of the reflectance minimum. We then decompose the –OH feature into several components with a new model using Exponentially Modified Gaussians… CONTINUE READING
