AGU SESSION P3235 – TITAN’S ENIGMATIC ATMOSPHERE AND IONOSPHERE

Abstract submission deadline: August 6th

The processes that control Titan’s atmosphere and ionosphere remain in many ways enigmatic even after ten years of observations and study from the Cassini mission and the Huygens probe. The instruments onboard Cassini-Huygens have studied in-situ and remotely many aspects of Titan’s atmosphere and coupled ionosphere. In the mesosphere, stratosphere, thermosphere, ionosphere, and exosphere studies of atmospheric composition, structure, and chemistry have recently produced breakthroughs in our understanding of this complex system. In this session, we focus on recent and ongoing studies of Titan’s atmosphere and ionosphere. Papers focusing on atmospheric observations, modeling, and laboratory studies are welcomed.
