Inversion of the Zodiacal Brightness Integral: a new Geometric Approach Suitable for the Out-Of-Ecliptic Zodiacal Light Programme

  • René Dumont (a1) and Anny-Chantal Levasseur-Regourd (a2)

Abstract

The information provided by measurements of the zodiacal brightness, Z, is discussed as a function of the looking direction, with respect to the velocity vector of the observer through the solar system. In addition to a few directions which allow inversion of the brightness integral completely free of assumptions, it is shown that the orbital plane gives inverting possibilities, based on a single assumption on the heliocentric dependence of the volume scattering efficiency. Important features of the zodiacal cloud distribution, very difficult to obtain from earthbound observations, will easily be derived from the data of the Out-Of-Ecliptic Zodiacal Light Experiment.
