Refractory and semi-volatile organics at the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko: insights from the VIRTIS/Rosetta imaging spectrometer

Abstract:

The VIRTIS (Visible, Infrared and Thermal Imaging Spectrometer) instrument aboard the Rosetta spacecraft has performed extensive spectral mapping of the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in the range 0.3-5μm. The reflectance spectra collected across the surface display a low reflectance factor over the whole spectral range, two spectral slopes in the visible and near-infrared ranges and a broad absorption band centered at 3.2μm. The first two of these characteristics are ...
