T-77: A Long Dry Spell

During this Titan flyby, the Radar instrument collects data before, during and after the spacecraft's closest approach. The return of altimetry data over Xanadu and the Xanadu/Shangri-La boundary should help in the determination of the moon's global shape. Also, the instrument captured synthetic aperture radar (SAR) views of northern Xanadu and Fensal, and stereo imaging of the impact crater Ksa. In addition, Scatterometry studies, which can reveal surface details, may uncover new surprises.
