    • Bathymetry and composition of Titan’s Ontario Lacus derived from Monte Carlo-based waveform inversion of Cassini RADAR altimetry data 

      Mastrogiuseppe M; Hayes AG; Poggiali V; Lunine JI; Lorenz RD; Seu R; Le Gall A; Notarnicola C; Mitchell KL; Malaska M; Birch SPD (2018)
      Recently, the Cassini RADAR was used to sound hydrocarbon lakes and seas on Saturn’s moon Titan. Since the initial discovery of echoes from the seabed of Ligeia Mare, the second largest liquid body on Titan, a dedicated ...
    • Numerical study of tides in Ontario Lacus, a hydrocarbon lake on the surface of the Saturnian moon Titan 

      Vincent D; Karatekin O; Vallaeys V; Hayes AG; Mastrogiuseppe M; Notarnicola C; Dehant V; Deleersnijder E (2016)
      In the context of the emergence of extra-terrestrial oceanography, we adapted an existing oceanographic model, SLIM (www.climate.be/slim), to the conditions of Titan, a moon of Saturn. The tidal response of the largest ...
    • TITAN AS REVEALED BY THE CASSINI RADAR 

      Lopes RMC; Wall SD; Elachi C; Birch SPD; Corlies P; Coustenis A; Hayes AG; Hofgartner JD; Janssen MA; Kirk RL; Legall A; Lorenz RD; Lunine JI; Malaska MJ; Mastroguiseppe M; Mitri G; Neish CD; Notarnicola C; Paganelli F; Paillou P; Poggiali V; Radebaugh J; Rodriguez S; Schoenfeld A; Soderblom JM; Solomonidou A; Stofan ER; Stiles BW; Tosi F; Turtle EP; West RD; Wood CA; Zebker HA; Barnes JW; Casarano D; Encrenaz P; Farr T; Grima C; Hemingway D; Karatekin O; Lucas A; Mitchell KL; Ori G; Orosei R; Ries P; Riccio D; Soderblom LA; Zhang Z (2019)
      Titan was a mostly unknown world prior to the Cassini spacecraft’s arrival in July 2004. We review the major scientific advances made by Cassini’s Titan Radar Mapper (RADAR) during 13 years of Cassini’s exploration of ...
    • Titan’s “Magic Islands”: Transient features in a hydrocarbon sea 

      Hofgartner JD; Hayes AG; Lunine JI; Zebker H; Lorenz RD; Malaska MJ; Mastrogiuseppe M; Notarnicola C; Soderblom JM (2016)
      The region of Titan's hydrocarbon sea, Ligeia Mare, where transient bright features were previously discovered, was anomalously bright in the first of two more recent Cassini RADAR observations but not the second. Another ...
