Saturn Main Rings
calculated image of Saturnís
5-1a and 5-1b:Displays a
comparison between the UG calculated zones providing rings D,C,B, A
and the Cassini Division
(figure 5-1b) and Saturnís
observed ring profile (figure 5-1a). In figure 5-1a areas depicted
in green and blue are dominated by small particles, and areas
indicated in violet consist mainly of large particles. White areas
indicate regions that were so opaque that the size of particle
could not be determined.
