Seminar Abstract:

High latitude orbits from Cassini have presented the first opportunity to fully explore the polar magnetosphere of a giant planet. In this talk we describe some of the findings from ongoing studies of the polar magnetosphere of Saturn. We will focus on case studies of passages through the cusp region and statistical work on high latitude plasma populations.
