Description

Dr. West will review what is known about Titan’s massive global haze.  Most remarkable is the behavior of a thin high layer which has undergone a large-amplitude seasonal change in altitude, returning to the altitude observed by the Voyager cameras almost 30 years (1 Titan year) earlier.
Dr. West is an atmospheric planetary scientist based at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in southern California. He is a member of the Cassini team and has worked on the Voyager and Galileo missions to the outer planets.
