Interpretation of observational data using spectro-polarimetric techniques
|Convener: Karri Muinonen | Co-conveners: Maria Gritsevich , Alberto Cellino|
Electromagnetic scattering phenomena play a key role in determining the observed properties of Solar System objects, as measured using different techniques and in a variety of wavelengths spanning from the ultraviolet to the radio. The aim of this session is to promote a general
advancement in the exploitation of observational and experimental techniques needed to collect data of crucial importance to understand the role of electromagnetic scattering in complex particulate media. Remote observations and laboratory measurements are essential to
empirically validate physically-based parameterization, to verify selected theoretical models, to provide reference data for observations, and to support databases needed for data-analysis techniques. Exploitation of
available data is a crucial tool in target classification and quantification.
Abstracts are solicited relevant to any aspect of the spectro-polarimetric and photometric techniques, including observations, laboratory studies and modelling.
