L' AND M' Photometry Of Ultracool Dwarfs
We have compiled L' (3.4?4.1 ?m) and M' (4.6?4.8 ?m) photometry of 63 single and binary M, L, and T dwarfs obtained at the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope using the Mauna Kea Observatory filterExpand

A Unified Theory for the Atmospheres of the Hot and Very Hot Jupiters: Two Classes of Irradiated Atmospheres
We highlight the potential importance of gaseous TiO and VO opacity on the highly irradiated close-in giant planets. The atmospheres of these planets naturally fall in to two classes that areExpand

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

Line and Mean Opacities for Ultracool Dwarfs and Extrasolar Planets
Opacities and chemical abundance data are crucial ingredients of ultracool dwarf and extrasolar giant planet atmosphere models. We report here on the detailed sources of molecular opacity dataExpand

THE 0.8-14.5 μm SPECTRA OF MID-L TO MID-T DWARFS: DIAGNOSTICS OF EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURE, GRAIN SEDIMENTATION, GAS TRANSPORT, AND SURFACE GRAVITY
We present new 5.2-14.5 {mu}m low-resolution spectra of 14 mid-L to mid-T dwarfs. We also present new 3.0-4.1 {mu}m spectra for five of these dwarfs. These data are supplemented by existing red andExpand

The composition and origin of the C, P, and D asteroids: Water as a tracer of thermal evolution in the outer belt
Abstract We present results of an extensive laboratory and telescopic investigation of H 2 O distribution among the low-albedo, outer belt asteroids (2.5–5.2 AU). The water distribution wasExpand

First light of the Gemini Planet Imager
Significance Direct detection—spatially resolving the light of a planet from the light of its parent star—is an important technique for characterizing exoplanets. It allows observations of giantExpand

Neglected Clouds in T and Y Dwarf Atmospheres
As brown dwarfs cool, a variety of species condense in their atmospheres, forming clouds. Iron and silicate clouds shape the emergent spectra of L dwarfs, but these clouds dissipate at the L/TExpand

Weather on Other Worlds. II. Survey Results: Spots are Ubiquitous on L and T Dwarfs
We present results from the Weather on Other Worlds Spitzer Exploration Science program to investigate photometric variability in L and T dwarfs, usually attributed to patchy clouds. We surveyed 44Expand
