Bathymetry and composition of Titan’s Ontario Lacus derived from Monte Carlo-based waveform inversion of Cassini RADAR altimetry data
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
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 ...
Dune Height Estimation on Titan Exploiting Pairs of Synthetic Aperture Radar Images With Different Observation Angles
(IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 2015)
Widespread longitudinal dunes have been identified on Titan thanks to the 2.2-cm wavelength Cassini Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) instrument. Understanding the properties of these surface features, such as material ...
Titan’s “Magic Islands”: Transient features in a hydrocarbon sea
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 ...
