The lakes on Saturn's moon Titan are filled with liquid methane, not water, and some are surrounded by steep rims. A new study suggests these features might have been caused by explosions of warming nitrogen, which created Titan's lake basins long ago.The lakes on Saturn's moon Titan are filled with liquid methane, not water, and some are surrounded by steep rims.

A new study suggests that some of the smaller methane lakes on Titan may have been formed by explosions of warming nitrogen.A new study based on radar data from NASA's Cassini deep-space probe suggests that some of the smaller methane lakes on Saturn's largest moon, Titan, may have been formed by explosions of warming nitrogen. If true, this would mean that there are at least two mechanisms for forming Titanian lakes.
