Titan Flyby (T-98): Radar Looks for Changes
February 2, 2014

During this close flyby of Titan, the Cassini Radar will look for changes to the shoreline of Ontario Lacus when compared to the T-57/58 (June/July 2009) and T-65 (January 2010) fly-bys. The instrument will be used as a synthetic aperture radar, a technique which uses that spacecraft's flight path to simulate a very large radar aperture.
