Observations of the Icy Universe

A.C. Adwin Boogert, Perry A. Gerakines, Douglas C.B. Whittet
2015 Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics  
This review summarizes the detected infrared spectroscopic ice features and compares the abundances across Galactic, extragalactic, and solar system environments.  ...  SMC MYSOs have low abundances when the H 2 O column is low, but converge to the LMC values at higher columns (Oliveira et al., 2013) . For background stars, the distribution is doublepeaked.  ...  For features caused by scattering ( §2), the ice column traced depends strongly on the grain size, and radiative transfer involving grain size distributions and appropriate optical constants must be calculated  ...

Simani / Annual Reviews in Control 40 (2015) 27-49 or H s . In addition, real ocean waves do not generally occur at a single frequency.  ...  The Weibull distribution may thus vary, both in its shape, and in its mean value. If the shape parameter is exactly 2, as in Fig. 6 , the distribution is known as a Rayleigh distribution.  ...
