The atmosphere of Titan: An analysis of the Voyager 1 radio occultation measurements
Abstract Two coherently related radio signals transmitted from Voyager 1 at wavelengths of 13 cm (S-band) and 3.6 cm (X-band) were used to probe the equatorial atmosphere of Titan. The measurementsExpand

Internal structure and early thermal evolution of Mars from Mars Global Surveyor topography and gravity.
Topography and gravity measured by the Mars Global Surveyor have enabled determination of the global crust and upper mantle structure of Mars. The planet displays two distinct crustal zones that doExpand
