Modeling of Absorption by Heavy Minor Species for the Hot Jupiter HD 209458b
The absorption of stellar radiation observed by HD 209458b in the resonant lines of O I and C II has not yet been satisfactorily explained. We apply a 2D hydrodynamic multi-fluid model that self-consistently describes the ...
Grid of upper atmosphere models for 1-40 M⊕ planets: application to CoRoT-7 b and HD 219134 b,c
There is growing observational and theoretical evidence suggesting that atmospheric escape is a key driver of planetary evolution. Commonly, planetary evolution models employ simple analytic formulae (e.g. energy limited ...
Overcoming the Limitations of the Energy-limited Approximation for Planet Atmospheric Escape
Studies of planetary atmospheric composition, variability, and evolution require appropriate theoretical and numerical tools to estimate key atmospheric parameters, among which the mass-loss rate is often the most important. ...
