Titan Ionospheric Profiles – 3/19/06 to 5/6/16

Nasa's Deep Space Net

Titan's Ionosphere

Brief description
The first four sets of radio occultations of the Titan’s ionosphere were obtained between March 2006 and May 2007. These occultations occurred at middle and high latitudes, at solar zenith angles from about 86°to 96°. Three additional occultation observations were made from November 2008 to June 2009, and others on May 17, 2014, June 18, 2014 and Feb 16, 2016 – See Data description and index.

The tables include altitude, electron density, planetocentric latitude, solar zenith angle and electron density error bar.
