One-dimensional aeronomical calculations of the atmospheric structure of extra-solar giant planets in orbits with semi-major a 0.01 to 0.1 AU show that the thermospheres are heated to over 10,000 K by the EUV flux from the central star. The high temperat the atmosphere to escape rapidly, implying that the upper thermosphere is cooled primarily by adiabatic expansion. The lower thermosph is cooled primarily by radiative emissions from H 3 , created by photoionization of H 2 and subsequent ion… CONTINUE READING
