This image composite shows three different views of the Huygens landing site. The top image was obtained by Cassini’s VIMS instrument in the infrared. The middle one is a mosaic of all the images obtained by the DISR visible camera on board Huygens, and shows surface features. The bottom image was obtained by Cassini’s SAR radar.
The green arrows shows correlated surface features; the magenta arrows indicate a pair of longitudinal sand dunes visible both in the DISR and SAR images.
