Dust in comets and interplanetary matter

Cometary Dust
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 48)

Abstract

Results of many current attemps to estimate the physical and chemical composition of dust particles in comets are reviewed and discussed. It is shown that even the most basic parameters, such as albedo of the cometary dust, are not properly known at the present time. The emission feature in the infrared spectra of comets, which resembles those observed in the interstellar (and circumstellar) clouds and which indicates a relation between the general composition of comets and interstellar matter, is widely ascribed to silicates. Similar features may, however, be also caused by polymerized molecules or hydrocarbons mantles of the dust grains.
