Abstract

Reviews the latest results concerning the physical properties of the satellites of Uranus. Topics covered are the sizes, shapes, topography, masses, densities and models of internal structures of the five major satellites. For the 10 small satellites discovered by Voyager 2, their sizes and shapes are discussed. The physical properties of the large satellites of Uranus are then compared to those other satellites in the outer solar system, particularly those of Jupiter and Saturn, and the implications that these comparisons have for understanding the origin and evolution of the satellites of Uranus are discussed. -from Authors
