|Title:||Saturn's Ionosphere: Some Evidence of Equatorial Anomaly|

|Abstract:||Electron density profiles obtained from radio science experiments on Pioneer-11, Voyager-1 and Voyager-2 have been analyzed to look for equatorial anomaly in the ionosphere of Saturn. Although there is no measurement right at the magnetic equator, the three southern latitude measurements provide some evidence for the existence of equatorial anomaly-a feature already seen in other magnetic planets like the earth and Jupiter. The extremely low electron densities observed in Saturn's ionosphere remain unexplained and require a faster H+ loss mechanism.|
