historic references Discovery circumstances, reference collections
lightcurves Light intensity variation with time, including rotational, secular, and occultation light curves
meteoritics Meteor shower counts, meteorite studies
physical properties Mass, density, albedo, etc.
production rates Quantification of mass loss from, e.g., the nucleus of a comet: molecule production rates, Afρ, etc.
shape models Shape models, slope models, terrain models, elevation models, etc.
