The surface of Saturn's haze-shrouded moon Titan has long been proposed to have oceans or lakes, on the basis of the stability of liquid methane at the surface. Initial visible and radar imaging failed to find any evidence of an ocean, although abundant evidence was found that flowing liquids have existed on the surface. Here we provide definitive evidence(More)
The Cassini Titan Radar Mapper imaged about 1% of Titan's surface at a resolution of approximately 0.5 kilometer, and larger areas of the globe in lower resolution modes. The images reveal a complex surface, with areas of low relief and a variety of geologic features suggestive of dome-like volcanic constructs, flows, and sinuous channels. The surface(More)
The most recent Cassini RADAR images of Titan show widespread regions (up to 1500 kilometers by 200 kilometers) of near-parallel radar-dark linear features that appear to be seas of longitudinal dunes similar to those seen in the Namib desert on Earth. The Ku-band (2.17-centimeter wavelength) images show approximately 100-meter ridges consistent with(More)

Cassini's Titan Radar Mapper imaged the surface of Saturn's moon Titan on its February 2005 fly-by (denoted T3), collecting high-resolution synthetic-aperture radar and larger-scale radiometry and scatterometry data. These data provide the first definitive identification of impact craters on the surface of Titan, networks of fluvial channels and surficial(More)
Forty-three consecutive cases of acute aseptic meningitis (AAM) presenting within a 24-months period were retrospectively analysed with respect to clinical symptomatology, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) findings, clinical course, treatment and outcome. Nineteen of the 43 AAM cases (44%) were caused by enterovirus, one by HIV (2%), two by Varicella zoster virus(More)
Introduction: Sand dunes cover about 5% of the land surface on Earth, and longitudinal ('seif') dunes, where the material accumulates in lanes oriented along the mean transport direction, are among the most common type of dune[1,2], covering half to two-thirds of sand seas. In contrast, they are among the least common dune-type on Mars [3]. The Cassini(More)
