Atmospheric Chemistry in Giant Planets , Brown Dwarfs , and Low-Mass Dwarf Stars II . Sulfur and Phosphorus

Thermochemical equilibrium and kinetic calculations are used to model sulfur and phosphorus chemistry in giant planets, brown dwarfs, and extrasolar giant planets (EGPs). The chemical behavior of individual Sand P-bearing gases and condensates is determined as a function of pressure, temperature, and metallicity. The results are independent of particular… CONTINUE READING
