Rosetta-Orbiter MIDAS 67P Cometary Particles Derived Data v2.0


Abstract: The Micro-Imaging Dust Analysis System (MIDAS) is an instrument on the ROSETTA Orbiter that will provide 3D images and statistical parameters of pristine cometary particles, collected in the vicinity of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This data set includes all images with identified dust particles, that have been collected in the PRELANDING to EXTENDED 3 mission phases. The identified particles are listed in a dedicated catalogue, which is implemented as a CSV table located in the /DATA directory (MID_PARTICLE_TABLE.TAB). Additional information can be found in the ROSETTA-MIDAS Particle Catalogue Document (MID_PARTICLE_CATALOG.PDF). Current dataset superceds V1.0 (RO-C-MIDAS-5-PRL-TO-EXT3-V1.0) dataset after fixing target numbers in browse images and particle catalogue.
