Three views of Titan

June 1, 2007

This composite of Huygens DISR images shows patterns of drainage, flow and erosion in the Huygens landing site region.

The top panel shows two types of drainage networks in the bright region about 5-10 kilometres north of the landing site. The lower-left panel is a high-resolution view of the erosional channels around the landing site. The lower right panel is a medium-resolution view of bright ridges standing above the dark plains carved by surface flows.
