Introducing planetary photometry as a quantitative remote sensing tool, this handbook demonstrates how reflected light can be measured and used to investigate the physical properties of bodies in our Solar System. Covering background theory and methods of data interpretation, it provides an accessible introduction for students, amateurs and planetary scientists.
Preface; 1. A brief history of planetary photometry; 2. Photometry conventions, terminology, and standards; 3. The mechanics of planetary observing; 4. The physical basis of photometric scattering models; 5. Planetary reflectance and basic scattering laws; 6. Planetary disk-integrated photometry; 7. Planetary disk-resolved photometry; References; Index.
