Spatial and temporal variations in Titans surface temperatures from Cassini CIRS observations

Abstract:

We report a wide-ranging study of Titans surface temperatures by analysis of the Moons outgoing radiance through a spectral window in the thermal infrared at 19 μm (530 cm -1) characterized by lower atmospheric opacity. We begin by modeling Cassini Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS) far infrared spectra collected in the period 20042010, using a radiative transfer forward model combined with a non-linear optimal estimation inversion method. At low-latitudes, we agree with the HASI near-sur...
