Titan's surface at 2.2-cm wavelength imaged by the Cassini RADAR radiometer: Calibration and first results
The first comprehensive calibration and mapping of the thermal microwave emission from Titan's surface is reported based on radiometric data obtained at 2.2-cm wavelength by the passive radiometerExpand
Global mapping and characterization of Titan’s dune fields with Cassini: Correlation between RADAR and VIMS observations
Abstract Vast fields of linear dunes have been observed in the equatorial regions of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon. As the Cassini mission, in orbit around Saturn since July 2004 and extended untilExpand
Active shoreline of Ontario Lacus, Titan: A morphological study of the lake and its surroundings
Of more than 400 filled lakes now identified on Titan, the first and largest reported in the southern latitudes is Ontario Lacus, which is dark in both infrared and microwave. Here we describe recentExpand
Cassini SAR, radiometry, scatterometry and altimetry observations of Titan’s dune fields
Large expanses of linear dunes cover Titan’s equatorial regions. As the Cassini mission continues, more dune fields are becoming unveiled and examined by the microwave radar in all its modes ofExpand
Iapetus’ near surface thermal emission modeled and constrained using Cassini RADAR Radiometer microwave observations
Abstract Since its arrival at Saturn, the Cassini spacecraft has had only a few opportunities to observe Iapetus, Saturn’s most distant regular satellite. These observations were all made from longExpand
Latitudinal and altitudinal controls of Titan’s dune field morphometry
Dune fields dominate ∼13% of Titan’s surface and represent an important sink of carbon in the methane cycle. Herein, we discuss correlations in dune morphometry with altitude and latitude. TheseExpand
Thermally anomalous features in the subsurface of Enceladus’s south polar terrain
Saturn’s moon Enceladus is an active world. In 2005, the Cassini spacecraft witnessed for the first time water-rich jets venting from four anomalously warm fractures (called sulci) near its southExpand
Radar-bright channels on Titan
Abstract During Cassini’s T44 flyby of Titan (May 28, 2008), the Cassini SAR (synthetic aperture radar) revealed sinuous channels in the Southwest of Xanadu. These channels feature very large radarExpand
Bathymetry and composition of Titan's Ontario Lacus derived from Monte Carlo-based waveform inversion of Cassini RADAR altimetry data
Abstract 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 largestExpand
Titan’s surface at 2.18-cm wavelength imaged by the Cassini RADAR radiometer: Results and interpretations through the first ten years of observation
Abstract A comprehensive calibration and mapping of the thermal microwave emission from Titan’s surface is reported based on radiometric data obtained at 2.18-cm wavelength by the passive radiometerExpand
