Abstract

The in situ measurement of the vertical profile of Titan's zonal wind is a major objective of the Huygens probe mission, as specifically addressed by the Doppler Wind Experiment (DWE), It now appears likely that an independent, if somewhat less accurate corroboration of the zonal wind retrieval will be afforded by the measured variation of the solar zenith angle Z from the Huygens Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer (DISK) throughout the course of the probe's atmospheric descent. The analyzed synergism of the DWE and DISR solar-Z measurements should provide an enhanced evaluation of the Titan atmospheric circulation.
