Extract

The interplanetary dust may be composed of cometary material, interstellar grains, debris from asteroidal collisions, primordial material formed by direct condensation, or contributions from all of these sources. Before we can determine the origin of the dust, we need to know its physical nature, spatial distribution, and the dynamical forces that act on the particles. The spatial distribution and dynamics are separately treated in this symposium by Roosen. We discuss here the physical characteristics of the dust particles: their size distribution, chemical composition, physical structure, and optical properties.
