Water Fact File for Titan

The Bottom Line:

Atmospheric Moon...

 

Findings from Dr Kotwicki's 1991 Paper:

Titan is the only satellite with an atmosphere, contrary to  previous beliefs composed of nitrogen rather than methane. Much has been written concerning its surface temperature of  94 K, which is close to the triple point of methane which could form seas, rivers, cliffs and icebergs on Titan: however any  resemblance to Earth conditions is rather superficial and variations in temperature probably too small.
