International Halley Watch Archive (PDS)

NSSDCA ID: PSSB-00049

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1981-12-02 to 1989-04-12

Description

This data set consists of the data gathered as a result of the International Halley Watch (IHW) effort. The data were originally available only on CD-ROM, but are now online (see below). The first twenty-four volumes make up the entire remote sensing (ground-based, airborne, and Earth-orbiting) component of the effort. Volumes 25 and 26 comprise the in situ observations made by the various spacecraft (Giotto, Suisei, Sakigake, Vega 1, and Vega 2, and ICE (ISEE-3)) sent to intercept comets Halley and Giacobini-Zinner. The various IHW disciplines (astrometry, infrared, large-scale phenomena, near-nucleus studies, photometry/polarimetry, spectroscopy/spectrophotometry, radio, amateur observations, and meteor studies) are all represented in the data set. The data are provided with FITS headers and PDS labels, both separate from the data files.

The data are available on-line at: https://pds-smallbodies.astro.umd.edu/data_sb/missions/ihw/index.shtml
