Abstract: In view of the possibility of employing CASSINI's experiments for the diagnosis of Saturn's rings, a semi-review is given of recent studies of morphology and dynamics of low and moderately high optical depth regions of Saturn's rings with special emphasis on its fine-scale radial structure (irregular cylindric structures of the order of 100 m or so). We predict that forthcoming (2004) CASSINI spacecraft high-resolution images of Saturn's rings may reveal this kind of radial structure.
