Roberto Gorelli points our attention to the recent publication of a very interesting paper: “Modeling the measurement accuracy of pre-atmosphere velocities of meteoroids” by Denis Vida, Peter G. Brown and Margaret Campbell-Brown. The paper has been accepted on 2018 July 7 for publication in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
For all involved with video camera networks, trajectory- and orbit calculations and related analyses, this paper provides interesting insights in the accuracy aspects and the observational errors that should be kept in mind when interpreting orbital data.
