Commission Pour L’Etude Physique Des Cometes

  • F. L. Whipple
Conference paper
Part of the International Astronomical Union Transactions book series (IAUT, volume 13B)

Abstract

The form of this Draft Report follows the practice of the 1964 Report. The first is a Narrative, briefly presenting progress as evaluated by the writer. Second is a short Administrative Report including results and plans for cooperative activities. Third is a comprehensive Bibliography, with extremely short abstracts. The writer is greatly indebted to the members of the Commission who have provided him with important assistance in the preparation of this report, particularly C. Arpigny (spectroscopy), G. Herzberg (laboratory work), and V. Vanýsek and B. J. Levin (Slavic languages). The writer, however, takes complete responsibility for the accuracy and relevancy of the contents.
