Applicant -- Cassini’s SAR and high-resolution radiometry data for the study of Titan: lessons learned and future work

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

The current Cassini’s SAR and high-resolution radiometry data coverage of Titan’s surface encompasses several areas in which multiple radar passes are present and overlapping, providing opportunities for integrated approaches to aid the interpretation of Titan’s surface features and tectonics

The Cassini’s SAR and high-resolution radiometry dataare explored for their intrinsic contribution to the study of Titan’s surface features and geology through different methodology for data extraction, parametric modeling, and integration. Examples on Cassini’s SAR geometry and characteristics for surface features identification, SAR and high-resolution radiometry data extraction and integration for compositional characterization, SAR rmsclassification, SAR PCA and SARTopo for surface features and tectonics elements identification are presented.

Current research work and remaining questions for a better understanding of Titan’s surface geology and tectonics are provided.
