Table information for 'planets.epn_core'

General

This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description: Demonstration service of EPN-TAP v1: main characteristics of planets. Data are included in the table, therefore most relevant parameters are non-standard in EPN-TAP. Data are retrieved from Archinal et al 2009 (IAU report, 2011CeMDA.109..101A) [radii] and Cox et al 2000 (Allen's astrophysical quantities, 2000asqu.book.....C) [masses, heliocentric distances, and rotation periods].

For a list of all services and tables belonging to this table's resource, see Information on resource 'Characteristics of Planets (demo)'

Citing this table

This table has an associated publication. If you use data from it, it may be appropriate to reference 2000asqu.book.....C (ADS BibTeX entry for the publication) either in addition to or instead of the service reference.
