Global topographic map of Titan from radar altimetry
An international team of 10 institutions, lead by Ralph D. Lorenz of Johns Hopkins University, USA, created the first global topographic map of Titan, a moon of Saturn. They used Cassini RADAR SARtopo and altimetry data for use in Global Circulation Models, hydrological models and correlative studies. The map itself consists of 90% of interpolated data. The dataset revealed four prominent topographic peaks in a row in the southern hemisphere.
These results are published in the July issue of Icarus.
