Olivine-rich asteroids, pallasitic olivine and olivine-metal mixtures: Comparisons of reflectance spectraThe recent acquisition of high resolution 0.3 - 2.6 micron reflectance spectra for a number of olivine-rich asteroids permits the analysis of their surface compositions to be made on the basis of new and existing laboratory spectral data for pallasitic olivines and olivine-metal mixtures. Analysis of the spectral data for the latter has revealed a number of spectral parameters which can be used to constrain olivine and metal abundances, grain sizes, and olivine compositions. The following topics are discussed in greater detail: pallasite olivine spectra, olivine-metal mixture spectra, and olivine-rich asteroid spectra.
