Journal: Earth, Moon, and Planets
Copyright: SpringerMIRI is the Mid InfraRed Instrument for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and will provide imaging, coronography and integral field spectroscopy in the range between 4.9 and 28.6 micron. We summarise solar system observations which may be possible with this instrument, drawing on examples of observations made with previous space missions such as IRAS, ISO and Spitzer.
Presented at the conference "Future Ground Based Solar System Research, Isola d'Elba, 8-12 September 2008"
