The ninth data release of the sloan digital sky survey: First spectroscopic data from the sdss-iii baryon oscillation spectroscopic survey
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey III (SDSS-III) presents the first spectroscopic data from the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS). This ninth data release (DR9) of the SDSS project includesExpand
Tidal Evolution of Close-in Extrasolar Planets
The distribution of eccentricitieseofextrasolarplanetswithsemimajor axesa > 0:2 AU isveryuniform,andvalues for e are relatively large, averaging 0.3 and broadly distributed up to near 1. For a < 0:2Expand
Extreme water loss and abiotic O2 buildup on planets throughout the habitable zones of M dwarfs.
In general, it is found that the initial phase of high luminosity may compromise the habitability of many terrestrial planets orbiting low-mass stars. Expand
Tidal evolution of close-in extra-solar planets
Abstract The distribution of eccentricities e of extra-solar planets with semi-major axes a > 0.2 AU is very uniform, and values for e are generally large. For a < 0.2 AU, eccentricities are muchExpand
EVEREST: Pixel Level Decorrelation of K2 Light curves
We present EVEREST, an open-source pipeline for removing instrumental noise from K2 light curves. EVEREST employs a variant of pixel level decorrelation (PLD) to remove systematics introduced by theExpand
Tidal Heating of Extrasolar Planets
Extrasolar planets close to their host stars have likely undergone significant tidal evolution since the time of their formation. Tides probably dominated their orbital evolution once the dust andExpand
The distribution of the orbits of close-in exoplanets shows evidence for ongoing removal and destruction by tides. Tides raised on a planet's host star cause the planet's orbit to decay, even afterExpand
Tidal locking of habitable exoplanets
Potentially habitable planets can orbit close enough to their host star that the differential gravity across their diameters can produce an elongated shape. Frictional forces inside the planetExpand
A dynamically-packed planetary system around GJ 667C with three super-Earths in its habitable zone
Guillen Anglada-Escude, et al, 'A dynamically-packed planetary system around GJ 667J with three super-Earths in its habitable zone', A&A, Vol. 556, A126, first published online 7 August 2013. TheExpand
Exomoon habitability constrained by illumination and tidal heating.
This work identifies combinations of physical and orbital parameters for which radiative and tidal heating are strong enough to trigger a runaway greenhouse on exomoons and defines a circumplanetary "habitable edge". Expand
