A Re-Consideration of the Evolution Hypothesis of the Origin of the Resonances Among Saturn's Satellites

  • A.T. Sinclair (a1)

Abstract

The hypothesis that the origin of the resonances among Saturn's satellites is due to orbital evolution is critically reviewed. It is concluded that the hypothesis provides a plausible explanation of the origin of the Mimas-Tethys resonance, but it is unsatisfactory for Bnceladus-Dione, since their resonance is having little effect on the relative evolution rate of these satellites at present.
