Description

Since the Cassini spacecraft arrived at Saturn in 2004, the Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS) investigation has detected a variety of radio and plasma waves in the magnetosphere of Saturn, including whistler mode chorus and hiss, lightning produced whistlers, high latitude auroral hiss, electrostatic electron cyclotron harmonic (ECH) and upper hybrid resonance (UHR) emissions, Z and O-mode narrowband emissions, and Saturn kilometric radiation (SKR). Plasma waves have also been detected in association with the Saturnian moons, including Enceladus and Rhea. We will review these observations, the properties of the various waves, and their importance in wave-particle interactions in the Saturn magnetosphere.
