Cassini Observes the Active South Pole of Enceladus
TLDR
The shape of Enceladus suggests a possible intense heating epoch in the past by capture into a 1:4 secondary spin/orbit resonance. Expand
Cassini Imaging Science: Instrument Characteristics And Anticipated Scientific Investigations At Saturn
The Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) is the highest-resolution two-dimensional imaging device on the Cassini Orbiter and has been designed for investigations of the bodies and phenomena foundExpand
The Runaway Greenhouse: A History of Water on Venus
Radiative-convective equilibrium models of planetary atmospheres are discussed for the case when the infrared opacity is due to a vapor in equilibrium with its liquid or solid phase. For a grey gas,Expand
Voyager 2 at Neptune: Imaging Science Results
Voyager 2 images of Neptune reveal a windy planet characterized by bright clouds of methane ice suspended in an exceptionally clear atmosphere above a lower deck of hydrogen sulfide or ammonia ices.Expand
Cassini Imaging of Jupiter's Atmosphere, Satellites, and Rings
TLDR
Findings on Jupiter's zonal winds, convective storms, low-latitude upper troposphere, polar stratosphere, and northern aurora are reported, including previously unseen emissions arising from Io and Europa in eclipse, and a giant volcanic plume over Io's north pole are described. Expand
Jupiter's Cloud Structure from Galileo Imaging Data☆
The vertical structure of aerosols on Jupiter is inferred from data obtained by the NASA Galileo Solid State Imaging system during the first six orbits of the spacecraft. Images at 889 nm (a strongExpand
A New Look at the Saturn System: The Voyager 2 Images
TLDR
Within Saturn's rings, the "birth" of a spoke has been observed, and surprising azimuthal and time variability is found in the ringlet structure of the outer B ring, leading to speculations about Saturn's internal structure and about the collisional and thermal history of the rings and satellites. Expand
Encounter with saturn: voyager 1 imaging science results.
TLDR
As Voyager 1 flew through the Saturn system it returned photographs revealing many new and surprising characteristics of this complicated community of bodies, including small inner satellites that interact gravitationally with one another and with the ring particles in ways not observed elsewhere in the solar system. Expand
Mars: Occurrence of Liquid Water
In the absence of juvenile liquid water, condensation of water vapor to ice and subsequent melting of ice are the only means of producing liquid water on the martian surface. However, the evaporationExpand
Martian Clouds Observed by Mars Global Surveyor Mars Orbiter Camera from Ls 135 to 310
We have made daily global maps that cover both polar and equatorial regions of Mars for Ls 135°–360° and 0°–111° using the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) red and blue wide-angleExpand
