The Cassini Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph Investigation
The Cassini Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS) is part of the remote sensing payload of the Cassini orbiter spacecraft. UVIS has two spectrographic channels that provide images and spectraExpand

Self‐gravity wakes in Saturn's A ring measured by stellar occultations from Cassini
[1] An azimuthal brightness asymmetry in Saturn's A ring is caused by ephemeral agglomerations that continually form under the mutual gravity of the ring particles only to be torn apart by KeplerianExpand

Self-gravity wakes and radial structure of Saturn's B ring
Abstract We analyze stellar occultations by Saturn's rings observed with the Cassini Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph and find large variations in the apparent normal optical depth of the B ring withExpand

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

The structure of Saturn's rings: Implications from the Voyager stellar occultation
The Voyager 2 photopolarimeter observed the star δ Scorpii as it was occulted by Saturn's rings, giving ∼ 100 m resolution in the radial direction across the entire ring system. Radial structure canExpand

Monte Carlo simulations of the water vapor plumes on Enceladus
Abstract Monte Carlo simulations are used to model the July 14, 2005 UVIS stellar occultation observations of the water vapor plumes on Enceladus. These simulations indicate that the observations canExpand

Moonlets and clumps in Saturn's F ring
Abstract Cassini UVIS star occultations by the F ring detect 13 events ranging from 27 m to 9 km in width. We interpret these structures as likely temporary aggregations of multiple smaller objects,Expand

Sulfur Dioxide: Episodic Injection Shows Evidence for Active Venus Volcanism
Pioneer Venus ultraviolet spectra from the first 5 years of operation show a decline (by more than a factor of 10) in sulfur dioxide abundance at the cloud tops and in the amount of submicron hazeExpand

The Cassini UVIS Stellar Probe of the Titan Atmosphere
The Cassini Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer (UVIS) observed the extinction of photons from two stars by the atmosphere of Titan during the Titan flyby. Six species were identified and measured:Expand
