Reddy Vesta Rotationally-Resolved Near-IR Spectra

This data set contains low-resolution near-infrared (~0.7-2.5 microns) spectra of main belt asteroid (4) Vesta observed with the SpeX instrument on NASA Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF) on Mauna Kea, Hawai'i, and reported in Reddy et al. (2011). This data set archives reduced, calibrated spectra that were obtained as part of ground-based characterization of Vesta prior to the arrival of Dawn spacecraft. They have been used for detailed rotationally-resolved mineralogical/compositional analysis.
