TRIAD Asteroid Polarimetry

This data set contains the data originally archived in TRIAD and reported in Morrison & Zellner, Asteroids (T. Gehrels, Ed., The University of Arizona Press, 1979). It tabulates the reduced values of the polarization curves of the asteroids, namely minimum polarization, inversion angle, and polarimetric slope.

Note: This data set is superseded by the Asteroid Polarimetric Database (APD) data set, a compilation of asteroid polarimetry prepared by Dmitri Lupishko.
