Thermal Infrared Radiation (2) Thermal energy dist. emission of a black body A p is the emitting area projected along the line-of-sight is the distance of the observer ( ) is the material emissivity (common practice = 0.9 for = 5 – 20 m) Sampling at several infrared wavelengths i, i = [1…N] A solution ( A p & T eff ) can be found by a non-linear least square fit (e.g. Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm: accuracies of ~10% in the effective diameter and 20 K in surface temperature)

4
Asteroid Surface Temperature (1) Temperature of a surface element: distance from the Sun, albedo, emissivity, angle of inclination to the solar direction Total incoming energy (incident): is the direction cosine of the normal to the surface with respect to to solar direction; S 0 is the solar constant; r is the heliocentric distance Absorption ( U a ) and emission ( U e ) energies:

Standard Thermal Model (STM) Assumptions: a spherical shape, instantaneous equilibrium between insolation and thermal emission at each point on the surface Refined (Lebofsky et al. 1986; Lebofsky & Spencer 1989): Introducing a beaming parameter (= 0.756) the tendency of the radiation to be “beamed” towards the Sun Asteroids have infrared phase curves which could be approximated by a linear function up to phase angles ( ) of about 30 mean phase coefficient E = 0.01 mag/deg

Fast Rotating Model (FRM) Also called iso-latitude thermal model For objects which: rotate rapidly, have high surface thermal inertias (half of the thermal emission originates from the night side) Assumptions: a perfect sphere, its spin axis is perpendicular to the plane of asteroid-observer-the Sun, a temperature distribution depending only on latitude

Near-Earth Asteroid Thermal Model (NEATM) Assumptions: a spherical shape, STM surface temp. dist., is a free parameter Changing T ss the whole surface temp. dist. is scaled by -1/4 is not set to 0.01 mag/deg. NEAs are often observed at much higher (up to 90 ) Require good wavelength sampling. If it is limited, use the default value = 1.2 (Harris 1998). Recently, Delbó et al. (2003) suggest = 1 for 45
