Cassini RADAR swath on Titan, flyby T13, April 30, 2006 [DEPRECATED]
Cassini RADAR swath on Titan, flyby T13, April 30, 2006 [DEPRECATED] The April 30, 2006 RADAR swath on Titan covered a region just south of the equator, complementary to the region sampled in the previous flyby (T8, October 28, 2005). It subtends about 120 degrees of longitude, from about 40 to about 160 degrees west. The western end covers an area that has been studied in depth with the optical remote sensing instruments, including Shikoku Facula ("Great Britain"), part of Kerguelen Facula, and the doughnut-shaped Guabonito crater. The rest of the swath covers the bright region of Xanadu. Xanadu contains rough terrain dissected by channels, as well as some possible impact craters. This image shows the approximate locations of all of the pieces of the swath that have been released to the public to date. The full swath should be released in April 2007. NASA / JPL-Caltech
