Abstract

One of the characteristics of many planetary in situ measurements is their bespoke design, sometimes without sufficient a priori knowledge. Thus, a lack of accuracy has to be compensated by taking special care in data processing. Using data from the Cassini–Huygens in situ experiment SSP [1], some data reduction methods used (e.g. [2]) are reviewed. The methods applied demonstrate how rigorous use of a posteriori information can result in more meaningful models. However, they also indicate areas where a posteriori processing cannot make up for appropriate experiment design. These examples used can serve as a starting point for a rigorous design strategy for in situ experiments.
