This is a dataset that compiles the data from various papers, which reported observations of brightness changes in comets that allowed to produce the comet lightcurves. Specifically, the data were based on the references in the paper by Samarasinha et al. (2004), i.e. they are those lightcurves, which were used to find out the rotational properties of the comet nuclei (periods, rotation vector coordinates, spin mode, etc.) reported by Samarasinha et al. (2004).
