The dynamics of the outer edge of Saturn’s A ring perturbed by the satellites Janus and Epimetheus

We present an analytical model to study the dynamics of the outer edge of Saturn's A ring. The latter is influenced by 7:6 mean motion resonances with Janus and Epimetheus. Because of the horseshoe

What Confines the Rings of Saturn?

The viscous spreading of planetary rings is believed to be counteracted by satellite torques, through either an individual resonance or overlapping resonances. For the A ring of Saturn, it has been

Figure 1: Main rings of Saturn; the image is registered along its top edge with a radial profile of the ring optical depth from a Cassini UVIS stellar occultation. The optical depth (usually denoted

Ring Seismology of the Ice Giants Uranus and Neptune

We assess the prospect of using ring seismology to probe the interiors of the ice giants Uranus and Neptune. We do this by calculating normal-mode spectra for different interior models of Uranus and

TIME VARIABILITY IN THE OUTER EDGE OF SATURN'S A-RING REVEALED BY CASSINI IMAGING

We examine the outer edge of Saturn's A-ring, whose shape is strongly influenced by the co-orbital satellites Janus and Epimetheus, during the period from day 2005-121 to day 2009-036. Twenty-four

Influence of the coorbital resonance on the rotation of the Trojan satellites of Saturn

The Cassini spacecraft collects high resolution images of the Saturnian satellites and reveals the surface of these new worlds. Tiscareno et al. succeeded to determine the Epimetheus rotation from

More Kronoseismology with Saturn's rings

In a previous paper (Hedman and Nicholson 2013), we developed tools that allowed us to confirm that several of the waves in Saturn's rings were likely generated by resonances with fundamental

FREE UNSTABLE MODES AND MASSIVE BODIES IN SATURN'S OUTER B RING

Voyager images and Cassini occultation data have previously shown that the behavior of the outer edge of Saturn's massive B ring is determined only in part by a static response to the 2:1 inner

Saturn’s rotation period from its atmospheric planetary-wave configuration

The rotation period of a gas giant's magnetic field (called the System III reference frame) is commonly used to infer its bulk rotation. Saturn's dipole magnetic field is not tilted relative to its
