Abstract
Data on the composition and thermal structure, and the Lyman-alpha dayglow of
Saturn when analyzed in conjunction with photochemical models of the hydrocarbons and the
atomic hydrogen

reduction yield the homopause value of the eddy diffusion coefficient to be
approximately 10 cm2 s-l. The equatorial value of the eddy diffusion coefficient at the
homopause of Saturn is thus found to be approximately 100 times greater than on Jupiter. The
