Paper Abstract

A model of the infrared radiance of the zodiacal light is generated which is based on parameters deduced from the visible scattering data and in-situ micrometeorite detectors. Comparison of this model with an infrared spectral measurement indicates that the dust is composed of a dirty silicate material. Detailed calculations of the spectral radiance and the directional variation are presented.
