Figure 5-7c: Calculated using

Saturn Main Rings

5-1b: UG calculated image of Saturnís main rings.

Figures 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.
