Much to my surprise, a chunk of the T16 Sar swath as been released:

An abundance of lakes can been seen. Some appear to be crater lakes (or sinkholes), like the lake at far left on the top cutout. That lake appears similar to Crater Lake in Oregon, with a little island in the middle (you can kinda see the attenuation of the signal surrounding the island as the methane gets deeper). Some lakes appear quite distinctive from the surrounding terrain, like the features on the right part of the bottom cutout.

I know Jason and some of the other Yahoo! planetary_sciences alumni will remember the following wager that someone made with a few of us just over two years ago:

"I have wagered $20 that Titan's surface lacks Cassini-resolvable bodies of liquid."
