Polarimetric properties of the lunar surface and its interpretation. part ii. terrestrial samples( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

For the interpretation of lunar polarisation measurements, samples were measured in the laboratory, using orange light of a wavelength of 6000 A. In all 61 samples were used, representing a wide variety of meteorites, volcanic ashes, basalts and other rocks. 31 samples have been seived into 4 grain size groups, with average grain sizes ranging from 160 micrometers down to 26 micrometers. Both the maximum degree of polarisation and the normal albedo are dependent of the grain size. The lunar data indicate a linear correlation between the log of the normal albedo and the log of the maximum degree of polarisation. The meteorites and the terrestrial samples are different, except for the two measured bronzide-chondrites and the fine-grained basalts. It is shown that several physical processes (i.e. upwelling, proton darkening, diminution of grainsize and surface compaction) have a bearing upon the normal albedo and the degree of polarisation.

Polarimetric properties of the lunar surface and its interpretation. part i. observations( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The paper reports on observations and analysis of polarimetric properties of the lunar surface. During the contract two new photoelectric polarimeters were developed, one for infrared and one for ultraviolet light. Part I of the study contains the observational work and is subdivided into two parts. The first part dealt with the polarization characteristics of 14 lunar regions of 65 seconds covering the wavelength range from 0.327 to 1.05 microns. Polarization curves have been obtained for all of these regions. A second set of observations is the determination of the maximum degree of polarization in orange light, of 142 regions, most of which are less than 5 seconds in diameter. The analysis of the measurements of maximum degree of polarization and the normal albedo yields a mathematical interrelation which very probably holds for all lunar terrains. A final portion of this study was the determination of a new lunar normal albedo scale based on measurements provided by nine different sources and the preparation of a catalog of normal albedos of 67 small lunar regions. Part II of the report discusses the application of the polarimetric techniques to the quantitative evaluation of physical properties of small regions on the lunar surface. (Author)
