J/A+A/389/641  Colors of Minor Bodies in the Outer Solar System (Hainaut+, 2002)

Colors of Minor Bodies in the Outer Solar System. A statistical analysis Hainaut O.R., Delsanti A.C. <Astron. Astrophys. 389, 641 (2002)> =2002A&A...389..641H

The measurements were combined in a way that does not introduce rotational color artifacts. We then derive the slope, or reddening gradient, of the low resolution reflectance spectra obtained from the broad-band color for each object. A set of color-color diagrams, histograms and cumulative probability functions are presented as a reference for further studies, and are discussed. File Summary:
