McDonald Observatory Faint Comet Spectro-Photometric Survey (PDS4 Format)

A PDS3 version of this data set can be found here.


Abstract: This study presents spectral data from 152 observations of 17 comets obtained using an Intensified Dissector Scanner spectrograph at the McDonald Observatory. A full description of these data and the reduction process, along with Haser model production rates can be found in Cochran et al. (1992). These data were migrated from the PDS3 dataset EAR-C-MCDIDS-3-RDR-MCDNLD-V1.0.
