GhoSST: "Grenoble astropHysics and planetOlogy Solid Spectroscopy and Thermodynamics" database

About GhoSST

The GhoSST database service contains spectroscopic experimental data of various types of solids of planetary and astrophysical interests. It covers different types of natural and synthetic solid samples (molecular solids / ices, minerals and rocks, organics and carbonaceous materials, meteorites, micrometeorites, IDPs...) measured with various spectroscopic techniques from the Vis to the Far-IR ranges (transmission, bidirectional reflectance (and BRDF), Raman and Fluorescence emissions, microscopy, ...). It provides different levels of data from simple transmission or reflection spectra to optical constants. GhoSST is part of the SSHADE-F service (SO5) of INSU/Astronomie Astrophysique - CNRS.
