Dawn Vesta Gravity Models

Status: Archived

This data set contains archival results from gravity investigations conducted during the Dawn mission while the spacecraft was in orbit around the asteroid Vesta. Radio measurements were made using the Dawn spacecraft and Earth-based stations of the NASA Deep Space Network (DSN). The data set includes a spherical harmonic model of Vesta's gravity field generated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, radial gravity acceleration map, and Bouguer map; these results were derived from raw radio tracking data.
