Dunes on Titan at the Beginning of the Cassini Solstice Mission

Abstract : Dunes on Titan, a dominant land- form comprising 12-20% of the surface, represent the end product of many surface processes acting in for- eign conditions. Winds in a nitrogen-rich atmosphere with Earth-like pressure transport sand that is likely to have been derived from complex organics produced in the atmosphere. These sands then accumulate into large linear dunes in planet-encircling sand seas con- centrated near the equator.
