Dust Devils on Titan

Jackson, Brian; Lorenz, Ralph D.; Barnes, Jason W.; Szurgot, Michelle

Conditions on Saturn's moon Titan suggest dust devils, which are convective, dust-laden plumes, may be active. Although the exact nature of dust on Titan is unclear, previous observations confirm an active aeolian cycle, and dust devils may play an important role in Titan's aeolian cycle, possibly contributing to regional transport of dust and even production of sand grains. The Dragonfly mission to Titan will document dust devil activity and thereby provide a new window into these features, and our analysis shows that dust devil vortex winds are likely to be modest and pose no hazard to the mission.
