Global color mosaic. Global VIMS color mosaic of Titan. We used the empirical atmospheric correction by [45] for Titan’s atmospheric windows at 1.08 μm, 1.28 μm, 1.6 μm, 2 μm, and 2.8 μm, and a single-scattering atmospheric model from (Vixie et al.: Two Temperate Lakes on Titan, in revision) for 5 μm. The map uses the best views of each area, but we remove pixels with incidence, emission, or phase angles above 80°. Those removed pixels are grey in the map. The correction works best at longer wavelengths; hence some residual haze becomes prominent in blue given our color mapping of R=5 μm, G=2 μm, B=1.28 μm. The bright pink areas represent overcorrections of the 5- μm window and are thus artifacts.
