The Cassini Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS) consists of
two spectrometers (far-Infrared and mid-Infrared). It measures the
infrared energy from Saturn, its rings and its moons. CIRS
observations of Saturn's rings should determine the thermal
structure of the the rings and provide insights into ring material
composition and ring particle size.
Calibrated CIRS data from the Saturn encounter is now available in two formats.
See the About CIRS Data Tab for information
about the formats.

The tabs associated with this page describe the CIRS data files and
how to obtain and use them.
