The CASSINI/HUYGENS mission is orbiting around Saturn since 2004.
The onboard RADAR instrument is dedicated to the study of the surface of Titan, the largest moon of Saturn. It allows to probe through the opaque atmosphere of Titan: we thus discovered large equatorial dune fields, cryovolcanic structures, and numerous lakes and seas filled with liquid methane in polar regions. Philippe Paillou is member of the Cassini Radar Science Team, in charge of the modeling and inversion of radar data.
