Abstract: The Cassini mission includes 34 investigations of Saturn’s icy satellites by the 2.2-cm-wavelength (13.8-GHz) RADAR instrument, operating both as a scatterometric radar and a passive radiometer. These measurements are sensitive to near-surface electrical properties and structure at scales about six times smaller than the only groundbased radar wavelength available to study the satellites (13 cm) and 22 times longer than the millimeter wavelengths at the limit of Cassini’s Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS). Here we present Cassini’s first radar results for seven of the satellites.
