Physical Characteristics of Cometary Dust from Optical Studies

Extract

Observations of the scattered sunlight and thermal emission from cometary dust provide information on the composition and dominant size of the dust. The observations will be summarized here and compared to theoretical models for dielectric and absorbing materials, with emphasis on the thermal emission. The compatibility of the optical data with the size distribution derived from dynamical studies is discussed.
