IRTF Near-IR Spectroscopy of Asteroids

This data set contains low-resolution, near-infrared (0.8 - 2.5 micron) spectra of asteroids obtained with SpeX at the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF) on Mauna Kea. Since it was commissioned in June 2000, SpeX has been the premier instrument for producing high quality near-IR spectra of asteroids. These spectra have been used for both taxonomic studies of asteroids, and for more detailed mineralogical and compositional investigations. This data set archives the reduced, calibrated spectra that have been published in the peer-reviewed literature, and will be regularly updated as more data become publicly available.
