I♥Pluto Festival 2022 | The Rivers and Seas of Titan

February 20 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Saturn’s moon Titan is the second known Solar system world with active rivers and seas. Titan’s deceptively Earth-like landscape is the product of a methane cycle akin to Earth’s water cycle, but there are important differences between Earth and Titan that offer lessons about planetary climate. I will illustrate this through a tour of Titan’s landforms, including methane rivers eroding mountains of ice, the search for waves on Titan’s seas, and the scarceness of river deltas.
