Offline Availability: Go to Request Form
Author and Affiliation:
Thompson, W. Reid(Cornell Univ., Ithaca, NY, United States)
Sagan, Carl(Cornell Univ., Ithaca, NY, United States)
Abstract: The interaction of Titan's organic sediments with the surface (solubility in nonpolar fluids) is discussed. How Titan's sediments can be exposed to an aqueous medium for short, but perhaps significant, periods of time is also discussed. Interactions with hydrocarbons and with volcanic magmas are considered. The alteration of Titan's organic sediments over geologic time by the impacts of meteorites and comets is discussed.
