We study the temporal and spatial evolution of rain-wetted surface on the north pole of Titan to aid our understanding of seasonality of the methane cycle and its evolution through time. These observations would also enable us to explore the reasons GCM(General Circulation Model) predictions of northern summers differ from the observed rainfall/storm activity. Here, we report wet-sidewalk effect indicating fresh rainfall or near surface fog/cloud activity in at least three other observations of Titan’s North Pole (apart from the first detection made in the T120 flyby [1]).
