Introduction to Planetary Photometry PDF

Michael-K Shepard

Introducing planetary photometry as a quantitative remote sensing tool, this handbook demonstrates how reflected light can be measured and used to investigate our solar system. The author explains how data gathered from telescopes and spacecraft are processed and used to infer properties such as the size, shape, albedo, and composition of celestial objects including planets, moons, asteroids, and comets. Beginning with an overview of the history and background theory of photometry, later chapters delve into the physical principles behind commonly used photometric models and the mechanics of observation, data reduction, and analysis. Real-world examples, problems, and case studies are included, all at an introductory level suitable for new graduate students, planetary scientists, amateur astronomers and researchers looking for an overview of this field.

Max Fairbairn's Planetary Photometry (last updated: 2005 March 1) Foreward Max Fairbairn, who was my first ever graduate student, obtained an M.Sc. in Astronomy at the University of Victoria, Canada, in 1971, after which he returned to his native Australia. It was some years later when I heard from him again. Apart from wanting to renew a friendship, he had found himself interested in a paper Introduction to Planetary Photometry - eBook - …
