A map of the day–night contrast of the extrasolar planet HD 189733b
TLDR
Observations of HD 189733, the closest of these eclipsing planetary systems, over half an orbital period are reported, from which a ‘map’ of the distribution of temperatures is constructed, indicating that energy from the irradiated dayside is efficiently redistributed throughout the atmosphere.

DISEQUILIBRIUM CARBON, OXYGEN, AND NITROGEN CHEMISTRY IN THE ATMOSPHERES OF HD 189733b AND HD 209458b
We have developed a one-dimensional photochemical and thermochemical kinetics and diffusion model to study the effects of disequilibrium chemistry on the atmospheric composition of “hot-Jupiter”Expand
Atmospheric circulation of hot Jupiters: Coupled radiative-dynamical general circulation model simulations of HD 189733b and HD 209458b
We present global, three-dimensional numerical simulations of HD 189733b and HD 209458b that couple the atmospheric dynamics to a realistic representation of nongray cloud-free radiative transfer.Expand
A continuum from clear to cloudy hot-Jupiter exoplanets without primordial water depletion
TLDR
The difference between the planetary radius measured at optical and infrared wavelengths is an effective metric for distinguishing different atmosphere types, so that strong water absorption lines are seen in clear-atmosphere planets and the weakest features are associated with clouds and hazes.

Atmospheric circulation and tides of ``51 Pegasus b-like'' planets
We examine the properties of the atmospheres of extrasolar giant planets at orbital distances smaller than 0.1 AU from their stars. We show that these \51 Peg b-like" planets are rapidly synchronizedExpand
Evolution of "51 Pegasus b-like" planets
About one-quarter of the extrasolar giant planets discovered so far have orbital distances smaller than 0.1 AU. These “51 Peg b-like” planets can now be directly characterized, as shown by the planetExpand
Equatorial superrotation on tidally locked exoplanets
The increasing richness of exoplanet observations has motivated a variety of three-dimensional (3D) atmospheric circulation models of these planets. Under strongly irradiated conditions, models ofExpand
Multiwavelength Constraints on the Day-Night Circulation Patterns of HD 189733b
We present new Spitzer observations of the phase variation of the hot Jupiter HD 189733b in the MIPS 24 μm bandpass, spanning the same part of the planet's orbit as our previous observations in theExpand
3.6 and 4.5 μm Phase Curves and Evidence for Non-equilibrium Chemistry in the Atmosphere of Extrasolar Planet HD 189733b
We present new, full-orbit observations of the infrared phase variations of the canonical hot Jupiter HD 189733b obtained in the 3.6 and 4.5 μm bands using the Spitzer Space Telescope. When combinedExpand
A PRECISE WATER ABUNDANCE MEASUREMENT FOR THE HOT JUPITER WASP-43b
The water abundance in a planetary atmosphere provides a key constraint on the planet’s primordial origins because water ice is expected to play an important role in the core accretion model ofExpand
