IRF scientists show how Saturn Alters the Ionosphere of Titan

Dr Niklas Edberg and colleagues from the Swedish Institute of Space Physics have studied how Saturn's powerful magnetic field changes the atmospheric chemistry of its largest moon, Titan. Their research paper on the subject in the Journal of Geophysical Research - Space Physics (October 2015) has been chosen as a Spotlight in the magazine and features in an article in EOS: Earth & Space Science News.

The Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) is a governmental research institute which conducts research and postgraduate education in atmospheric physics, space physics and space technology. Measurements are made in the atmosphere, ionosphere, magnetosphere and around other planets with the help of ground-based equipment (including radar), stratospheric balloons and satellites. IRF was established (as Kiruna Geophysical Observatory) in 1957 and its first satellite instrument was launched in 1968. The head office is in Kiruna (geographic coordinates 67.84° N, 20.41° E) and IRF also has offices in Umeå, Uppsala and Lund.
