Flux of small near-Earth objects colliding with the Earth (Brown et al. 2002). Data are shown over a range of 14 magnitudes in energy. The statistical model is based on near-Earth population for big sizes and, for the smaller objects, it is derived from a decade-long survey of ground-based observations of meteor and fireballs. The FRIPON network lies exactly between minor planets (detected by telescopes and planetary impacts) and interplanetary dust (detected by meteor networks). The solid arrow corresponds to FRIPON nominal mode; the dashed line is for rare events, observable by FRIPONbut with a very low probability.
