Radio and plasma wave observations during Cassini's Grand Finale

Abstract : Cassini has commenced its high inclination Grand Finale orbits with perikrones falling between the inner edge of the D ring and the upper limits of Saturn's atmosphere. The Cassini Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS) instrument makes a variety of observations in these unique orbits including Saturn kilometric radiation, plasma waves such as auroral hiss associated with Saturn's auroras, dust via impacts with Cassini, and the upper reaches of Saturn's ionosphere. This paper will provide an overview of the RPWS results from this new and final phase of the Cassini mission with the unique opportunities afforded by the orbit.
