Cassini RADAR Images of Titan

Data from the Ta encounter, 26 October 2004

(I'll add much more, with ancillary data, when I get the chance - need to prepare material for DPS, AGU, press conference etc... first)

Altimetry - Titan appears very flat

Best Hi-res SAR, just after closest approach. Seems to show circular dark feature (relict crater?) as well as many sinuous and deltoid features. It is impressively difficult to recognize familiar landforms so far....which is not a disappointing thing!

High Resolution

SAR segment from later in the pass, showing the 'Si-SI The Halloween Cat' archipelago of dark features (lakes?) as well as other sinuous and deltoid features
