4to. xvi, 437 pp. Tables, index. White cloth. Near fine. "This book contains the documentation for the IRAS Minor Planet Survey (IMPS). It explicates the creation and formats of the final data products and contains all of the hard copy catalogs. Although the reader is often referred to the /RAS Explanatory Supplement (1988) for arcane details of the IRAS hardware, inertial source survey strategy, or SDAS data processing technicalities, and to the IRAS Asteroid and Comet Survey (1986) for information regarding the previous processing of IRAS asteroid data, this document alone should satisfy the needs of most users of IRAS asteroid data. Because of substantial changes between the first processing of the IRAS asteroid data and the current version it was necessary, to produce a different set of final data products and to completely rewrite the documentation. This version describes the data submitted to the National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC); interested readers are referred to the NSSDC for access to the IMPS data. See §1.3, page 3 for instructions on how to do this."
