Giese, B., Roatsch, T., Wagner, R., Denk, T., Neukum, G. (2006). "Topographic models of the icy Saturn satellites." European Planetary Science Congress EPSC2006-A-00119.


On its tour through the Saturn system Cassini has acquired hundreds of images of the saturnian satellites with resolutions much improved over the earlier Voyager data. These new images provide stereo coverage of the surfaces in many areas that can be used to derive regional, high-resolution topographic models of the satellites. In this talk, models of Iapetus, Dione, Tethys and Enceladus will be presented, and implications for the formation of features and lithospheric thickness will be shown.
