Here are DISR images of the RADAR-dark/ISS-bright terrain closest to the Huygens Landing site.
(The Huygens probe landed pretty close to this feature - about 8 km away)

Here's the a better image of the Pseudocolor Matrix image of the Huygens Channel.

Here is a predicted VIMS model of the Huygens Channel region on Titan:
Attached Image


To make this model, I let the pseudocolor gradient be driven mostly by the ISS[0.93 um] spectral response and it's correlation with VIMS terrain type. Then I applied a gentle pseudocolor gradient using the inverted [T8+T41] SAR RADAR of the same region. This allows the RADAR dark/ISS-bright regions to become brighter, and the strongly RADAR bright mountain regions to become slightly VIMS darker.

Here is a blink animation that compares this to the VIMS data presented in Jaumann et al. LPSC 40 (2009) Abstract 1599.:

Pardon my ignorance, but can we expect anything new from this conference? I'm was under the impression that we've about squeezed all we can out of Huygens data.

Well, here's a phrase copied from the link above:
results from studies of this moon using remote sensing from instruments on the Cassini Orbiter combined with Huygens data

In particular the VIMS closeup of the landing site could come into play here. (That's what I'm hoping, anyhow - knowing nothing but ever optimistic. smile.gif )

Cassini's obtained a LOT more contextual data since the landing, so this conference sounds like an attempt to get all the major workers together to generate an integrated interpretation of the results. Additionally, it looks like there will be some post-facto engineering review activity, which is always important for planning the next generation of probes.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Following the links a bit further:

(And yes there is a presentation on VIMS/DISR comparison. smile.gif )

Also, remember that although the Cassini team meets regularly, the Huygens team isn't necessarily part of those meetings (unless of course you're talking of individual scientists who had roles on both missions). This would be an opportunity for Cassini people to present the latest stuff to Huygens people and for them to discuss how recent Cassini results fit into the context of the Huygens work.

When can we expect to know the information presented at this meeting?

A good question. There seem to be no abstracts posted, but there may be news releases over the next few days. Even better, perhaps we have members attending who will be willing to share highlights of the event.

Re - pinned threads. I'm guessing they're 'sticky' threads Floyd - i.e. important topics/discussions that always appear at the top of the forum, regardless of the last modification date.

5 years ago today Huygens landed on Titan!
