In situ measurements of the physical characteristics of Titan's environment
TLDR
The temperature and density profiles, as determined by the Huygens Atmospheric Structure Instrument (HASI), from an altitude of 1,400 km down to the surface were higher than expected and the extent of atmospheric electricity was also hitherto unknown.
Tidal Winds on Titan Caused by Saturn
Abstract The influence of Saturn's gravitational tide on the atmosphere of Titan is investigated by means of a three-dimensional general circulation model. Titan's orbital eccentricity of 0.0292
Methane drizzle on Titan
TLDR
It is shown that the in situ data on the methane concentration and temperature profile in Titan's troposphere point to the presence of layered optically thin stratiform clouds, indicating that methane precipitation occurs wherever there is slow upward motion.
Three-dimensional modeling of the tropospheric methane cycle on Titan
The tropospheric methane cycle on Titan including advection, diffusion, condensation, precipitation, evaporation, and surface source is simulated by a three-dimensional general circulation model. The
Seasonal variation of Titan's atmospheric structure simulated by a general circulation model.
TLDR
The seasonal variation of Titan's atmospheric structure with emphasis on the stratosphere is simulated by a three-dimensional general circulation model, and an artificial damping of the meridional circulation enables the formation of high-latitude jets in the upper stratosphere and weaker equatorial superrotation.
Wind‐induced seasonal angular momentum exchange at Titan's surface and its influence on Titan's length‐of‐day
Titan's substantial obliquity and the global extent of the Hadley circulation give rise to seasonal variation in the mean zonal wind speed and direction in the geostrophic lower troposphere, causing
Titan's planetary boundary layer structure at the Huygens landing site
[1] Huygens Atmospheric Structure Instrument (HASI) for the first time performed an in situ measurement of the thermal structure in Titan's atmosphere with a vertical resolution sufficient to analyze
