T-108: A Return to Titan’s Shorelines and Channels
Cassini's radar used its synthetic aperture radar (SAR) mode to obtain images of Titan’s seas in order to look for changes. Observations of the shorelines of Titan’s huge polar seas, Ligeia and Kraken, began approximately an hour before closest approach. The closest approach SAR data, and the most unique observation of this flyby, captured the labyrinth of channels between Kraken mare and Ligeia mare. Other RADAR observations included inbound and outbound scatterometry and radiometry, as well as outbound altimetry in high-altitude areas.
