In this section we survey the historical development of Venus models and the range of models now available, before discussing some of their remaining limitations. We also consider some approaches which have been taken to model Saturn's moon Titan, also a slowly-rotating body with an optically thick, dense atmosphere which super-rotates compared to Titan's surface.
