Wind or Rain or Cold of Titan's Night? (http://www.astrobio.net/news/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid= 1480&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0)


Titan's surface appears to be as complex as planet Earth's, though the rates at which the various forces modify its surface may be much slower than on our planet. Imaging scientists, analyzing images of Titan designed to allow views of the surface and lower atmosphere, have discovered that the winds on Titan blow a lot faster than the moon rotates. Together these results suggest a more Earth-like dynamic moon.
