dc.description.abstract After more than six years in orbit around Saturn, the Cassini Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS) has acquired an extensive set of measruements of Saturn's main rings (A, B, C and Cassini Division) in the thermal infrared. Temperatures were retrieved for the lit and unlit rings over a variety of ring geometries that include phase angle, solar and spacecraft elevations and local time. We show that some of these parameters (solar and spacecraft elevations, phase angle) play a role in the temperature vatiations in the first order, while the others (ring and particle local time) produced second order effects. The results of this comparison will be presented. en_US
