Possible Titan lakes and drainage channels

Possible Titan lakes and drainage channels
Possible Titan lakes and drainage channels In this segment of the 22 July 2006 RADAR swath on Titan, very dark features are possible lakes; some, less dark features could be lakebeds that are now dried up. The darkest lake-like feature near the top of this image appears to have a thin drainage channel emptying into it from the east. It may even be possible that this channel connects the lake feature to one of the possible dried-up features to its southeast. However, the channel disappears into the background noise of the RADAR data, so evidence that the two features are connected is not conclusive. NASA / JPL-Caltech
