Abstract Spectra taken by the Cassini Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS) of Saturn’s C ring, B ring, Cassini Division, and A ring have been analyzed in order to characterize ring particle surface properties and water ice abundance in the rings. UVIS spectra sense the outer few microns of the ring particles. Spectra of the normalized reflectance ( I / F ) in all four regions show a characteristic water ice absorption feature near 165 nm. Our analysis shows that the fractional abundance of… CONTINUE READING
