New Vision of the Saturnian System in the Context of a Highly Dissipative Saturn

Four years after the end of the Cassini mission, we now have a good overview of the essential mechanisms that are at work in the Saturnian system. This collection presents results from the ISSI Workhop "New Vision of the Saturnian System in the Context of a Highly Dissipative Saturn", held 9–13 May 2022, with an interdisciplinary approach introducing up-to-date scientific results derived from Cassini.

Readers interested in understanding the essential results and open questions concerning the rings and satellites of Saturn may find some interest in this collection. Moreover, the multidisciplinary approach shall give the reader a broad sense of the current techniques used and theoretical knowledge acquired in planetology in 2022.
