Titan Volcano in Several Infrared Wavelengths

November 17, 2009
Details of the circular feature, which scientists think is an ice volcano, which could be a source of methane in Titan's atmosphere, show up at wavelengths larger than 1.3 microns.

The first six panels are images of the feature taken in six infrared windows and are georeferenced. Ratio image are represented in order to visualise compositional variations. The last panel is a colour composite image (red, 2.75 micron; green, 2.0 micron; blue, 1.6 micron).
