Abstract

The techniques of Fourier transform spectroscopy combined with large aperture telescopes and advances in detector technology now permit infrared observations of the surfaces of small solar system objects such as asteriods and satellites. The results demonstrate that this activity can produce important new compositional information related to the origin and evolution of the solar system. The detection of water ice in Saturn's rings and on some of the satellites of Jupiter and Saturn confirm expectations that ices are important mineralogical components in the chemistry of the outer solar system.
