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.
The strength of the lithosphere beneath the ancient southern highlands suggests that the northern hemisphere was a locus of high heat flow early in martian history and the thickness of the elastic lithosphere increases with time of loading in the northern plains and Tharsis. Expand
The atmosphere of Uranus: Results of radio occultation measurements with Voyager 2
During Voyager 2's occultation by Uranus the radio link from the spacecraft probed the atmosphere of the planet at latitudes ranging from 2° to 7° south. The measurements, which were conducted at twoExpand
Saturn's rings: Particle size distributions for thin layer models
Abstract The small physical thickness of Saturn's rings requires that radio occultation observations be interpreted using scattering models with limited amounts of multiple scatter. A new model inExpand
Structure of the Venus neutral atmosphere as observed by the Radio Science experiment VeRa on Venus Express
[1] The European Space Agency Venus Express Radio Science experiment (VeRa) obtained 118 radio occultation measurements of the Venusian atmosphere between July 2006 and June 2007. Southern latitudesExpand
Initial results from radio occultation measurements with Mars Global Surveyor
A series of radio occultation experiments conducted with Mars Global Surveyor in early 1998 has yielded 88 vertical profiles of the neutral atmosphere. The measurements cover latitudes of 29°N toExpand
Radio science observations with Mars Global Surveyor: Orbit insertion through one Mars year in mapping orbit
Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) radio science comprises studies of the atmosphere and gravity of the planet. Perturbations of the 3.6-cm λ radio path by the atmosphere during periods of atmosphericExpand
The gravity field of Mars: results from Mars Global Surveyor.
Observations of the gravity field of Mars reveal a planet that has responded differently in its northern and southern hemispheres to major impacts and volcanic processes. The rough, elevated southernExpand
Saturn's rings - Properties and processes
In the present consideration of the structural and particle properties of Saturn's rings, emphasis is given to spacecraft observations and an attempt is made to relate observed properties to favoredExpand
Voyager Radio Science Observations of Neptune and Triton
The Voyager 2 encounter with the Neptune system included radio science investigations of the masses and densities of Neptune and Triton, the low-order gravitational harmonics of Neptune, the verticalExpand
