HOW TO CONSTRAIN YOUR M DWARF: MEASURING EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURE, BOLOMETRIC LUMINOSITY, MASS, AND RADIUS
Precise and accurate parameters for late-type (late K and M) dwarf stars are important for characterization of any orbiting planets, but such determinations have been hampered by these stars' compl
Genome sequence of the dissimilatory metal ion–reducing bacterium Shewanella oneidensis
TLDR
This genome sequence represents a critical step in the elucidation of the pathways for reduction (and bioremediation) of pollutants such as uranium (U) and chromium (Cr), and offers a starting point for defining this organism's complex electron transport systems and metal ion–reducing capabilities.
Revised Stellar Properties of Kepler Targets for the Quarter 1-16 Transit Detection Run
We present revised properties for 196,468 stars observed by the NASA Kepler mission and used in the analysis of Quarter 1-16 (Q1-Q16) data to detect and characterize transiting planets. The catalog
Paleoproterozoic snowball earth: extreme climatic and geochemical global change and its biological consequences.
Geological, geophysical, and geochemical data support a theory that Earth experienced several intervals of intense, global glaciation ("snowball Earth" conditions) during Precambrian time. This
Trumpeting M dwarfs with CONCH-SHELL: a catalogue of nearby cool host-stars for habitable exoplanets and life
We present an all-sky catalog of 2970 nearby (d . 50 pc), bright (J < 9) M- or late Ktype dwarf stars, 86% of which have been confirmed by spectroscopy. This catalog will be useful for searches for
AN ALL-SKY CATALOG OF BRIGHT M DWARFS
We present an all-sky catalog of M dwarf stars with apparent infrared magnitude J 40 mas yr{sup -1}, supplemented on the bright end with the Tycho-2 catalog. Completeness tests which account for
Prospecting in late-type dwarfs: a calibration of infrared and visible spectroscopic metallicities of late-K and M dwarfs spanning 1.5 dex
Knowledge of late K and M dwarf metallicities can be used to guide planet searches and constrain planet formation models. However, the determination of metallicities of late-type stars is difficult
Spectro-Thermometry Of M Dwarfs And Their Candidate Planets: Too Hot, Too Cool, Or Just Right?
We use moderate-resolution spectra of nearby late K and M dwarf stars with parallaxes and interferometrically determined radii to refine their effective temperatures, luminosities, and metallicities.
Revised Radii of Kepler Stars and Planets Using Gaia Data Release 2
One bottleneck for the exploitation of data from the $Kepler$ mission for stellar astrophysics and exoplanet research has been the lack of precise radii and evolutionary states for most of the
Strike‐slip motion and double ridge formation on Europa
layer thickness of 2 km and shear velocity of 6 � 10 � 7 ms � 1 . Such a velocity is appropriate for diurnal (85 hour) tidal motion. The local increase in temperature may cause � 100 m uplift around
