Titan's Monsoons
"The leftmost of these three frames shows a radar image of Titan's surface, returned by the Cassini RADAR instrument. Green lines show the field of view in the next two frames, which were generated in Terragen and then hand painted in Photoshop. The center view shows what the surface would look like during the hypothesized "methane monsoon." The view at far right shows what the site might look like today, complete with parallel dunes of ice-sand or organic material."
