Texture and Composition of Titan's Equatorial Sand Seas Inferred From Cassini SAR Data: Implications for Aeolian Transport and Dune Morphodynamics

The texture, composition, and morphology of dunes observed in the equatorial regions of Titan may reflect present and/or past climatic conditions. Determining the physio‐chemical properties and the

Pattern analysis and dating for the Badain Jaran dune field, northwestern China

Pattern analysis can estimate dune formation ages, judge wind conditions and extract environmental signals from the common pattern parameters of active dune field. For the extraterrestrial dune

Long‐Wavelength Sinuosity of Linear Dunes on Earth and Titan and the Effect of Underlying Topography

On both Earth and Titan, some linear dunefields are characterized by curvilinear patterning atypical of the regularity and straightness of typical longitudinal dunefields. We use remotely sensed

Sand Sea Extents and Sediment Volumes on Titan from Dune Parameters

Sand Sea Extents and Sediment Volumes on Titan from Dune Parameters Karl Douglas Arnold Department of Geological Sciences, BYU Master of Science Linear dunes are one of the most abundant and

Texture and composition of Titan's equatorial region inferred from Cassini SAR inversion: Implications for aeolian transport at Saturn's largest moon

Sand seas on Titan may reflect the present and past climatic conditions. Understanding the morphodynamics and physico-chemical properties of Titan's dunes is therefore essential for a better

Alluvial and fluvial fans on Saturn's moon Titan reveal processes, materials and regional geology

Abstract Fans, landforms that record the storage and transport of sediment from uplands to depositional basins, are found on Saturn's moon Titan, a body of significantly different process rates and

The sedimentary structure of linear sand dunes

Images produced by ground penetrating radar showing the three-dimensional sedimentary structure of a linear dune in the Namib sand sea, where some of the world's largest linear dunes are situated, show clear evidence for lateral migration in alinear dune.

Global pattern of Titan's dunes: Radar survey from the Cassini prime mission

We present a map of the orientation and extent of Titan's sand dunes derived from the complete radar imaging dataset from the Cassini prime mission. The 16,000 dune segments we have mapped cover ∼8%

Monitoring surface change on a Namib linear dune

In tackling the apparently intractable problem of linear dune initiation and maintenance there has been a move away from large-scale deductive models to smaller-scale field studies of individual
