Neptune-sized extrasolar planets that orbit relatively close to their host stars—often called “hot Neptunes”—are common within the known population of exoplanets and planetary candidates. Similar to our own Uranus and Neptune, inefficient accretion of nebular gas is expected produce hot Neptunes whose masses are dominated by elements heavier than hydrogen and helium. At high atmospheric metallicities of 10–10,000 times solar, hot Neptunes will exhibit an interesting continuum of atmospheric… CONTINUE READING
