Abstract

This report has, following the usual practice in Commission 15, been compiled primarily by the chairpersons of the two working groups. E. Tedesco prepared the entire section about Asteroids and Meteorites. H. U. Keller prepared the section about Comets using material originally prepared by E. Kührt (nuclei), H. Böhnhardt (dust), R. Schulz (neutral gas), and W.-H. Ip (plasma). M. F. A’Hearn did minor editing to merge the two reports and fit the report into the allotted space.
