J/A+A/507/1649 Tohoku-Hiroshima-Nagoya planetary spectra library (Lundock, 2009)

Tohoku-Hiroshima-Nagoya planetary spectra library: A method for characterizing planets in the visible to near infrared. Lundock R., Ichikawa T., Okita H., Kurita K., Kawabata K.S., Uemura M., Yamashita T., Ohsugi T., Sato S., Kino M. <Astron. Astrophys. 507, 1649 (2009)> =2009A&A...507.1649L
ADC_Keywords: Planets ; Spectra, infrared Keywords: astronomical data bases: miscellaneous - planets and satellites: general Abstract: A comprehensive framework for comparing spectral data from different planets has yet to be established. This framework is needed for the study of extrasolar planets and objects within the solar system. We completed observations to compile a library of planet spectra for all planets, some moons, and some dwarf planets in the solar system to study their general spectroscopic and photometric natures. During May and November of 2008, we acquired spectra for the planets using TRISPEC, which is capable of simultaneous three-band spectroscopy across a wide wavelength range of 0.45-2.5um with low resolving power (λΔλ∼140-360). Description: The files included in this folder are fully reduced, wavelength calibrated and color flattened data from our observations for the planetary spectra library. In sp subdirectory, the first column indicates the wavelength in microns. The second column indicates the intensity of the spectrum at that wavelength. spbin subdirectory contains files which has been rebinned to the wavelength resolution of TRISPEC. The third column indicates the 1 sigma value of the binned pixels. A "-1" in the column for the intensity value and sigma indicates an error return during the rebinning process. File Summary:

Note (1): Because of the strong ring, the naming system for Saturn requires more detail: * "SaturnwithRing" indicates a spectrum of the planet Saturn where light from the ring also entered the spectrograph slit. * "SaturnRing" indicates a spectrum of the ring, and light from the planet Saturn did not enter the spectrograph slit. * "SaturnNPole" indicates the spectrum taken by rotating the spectrograph slit and placing it on Saturn's North Pole so that light from the ring did not enter the spectrograph slit. Note (2): Single spectra are in sp subdirectory (sp/FileName), spectra rebinned to the wavelength resolution of TRISPEC are in spbin subdirectory (spbin/bin_FileName).
