Thermal properties instrument for measurements on Titan

Thermal properties instrument for measurements on Titan

Abstracts of Papers Submitted to the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference 31(Pages (abstr

The thermal properties sensor (THP) is part of the European Space Agency's Huygens probe. The THP sensor is primarily designed to measure the thermal conductivity of Titan's surface and atmosphere during the descent phase.
