The ever-expanding catalog of detected super-Earths calls for theoretical studies of their properties in the case of a substantial water layer. This work considers such water planets with a range of
Habitable planets around the star Gliese 581
Radial velocity surveys are now able to detect terrestrial planets at habitable distance from M-type stars. Recently, two planets with minimum masses below 10 Earth masses were reported in a triple
Observable consequences of planet formation models in systems with close-in terrestrial planets
To date, two planetary systems have been discovered with close-in, terrestrial-mass planets (� 5‐10 M ⊕ ). Many more such discoveries are anticipated in the coming years with radial velocity and
Rocky super-Earths or waterworlds: the interplay of planet migration, pebble accretion, and disc evolution
Recent observations have found a valley in the size distribution of close-in super-Earths that is interpreted as a signpost that close-in super-Earths are mostly rocky in composition. However, new
Water loss from terrestrial planets orbiting ultracool dwarfs: implications for the planets of TRAPPIST-1
Ultracool dwarfs (UCD) encompass the population of extremely low mass stars (later than M6-type) and brown dwarfs. Because UCDs cool monotonically, their habitable zone (HZ) sweeps inward in time.
Formation of Terrestrial Planets
The past decade has seen major progress in our understanding of terrestrial planet formation. Yet key questions remain. In this review we first address the growth of 100 km-scale planetesimals as a
Ocean Planet or Thick Atmosphere: On the Mass-Radius Relationship for Solid Exoplanets with Massive Atmospheres
The bulk composition of an exoplanet is commonly inferred from its average density. For small planets, however, the average density is not unique within the range of compositions. Variations of a
Planetans—oceanic planets
The development of principles, systems, and instruments enable the detection of exoplanets with 6–8 Earth masses or less. The launches of specialized satellites, such as CoRoT (2006) and Kepler
Escape of Planetary Atmospheres
The extreme radiation and plasma environments during the period of the young active Sun/Stars have important implications for the evolution of planetary atmospheres and may be responsible that
Observing the Atmospheres of Known Temperate Earth-sized Planets with JWST
Nine transiting Earth-sized planets have recently been discovered around nearby late-M dwarfs, including the TRAPPIST-1 planets and two planets discovered by the MEarth survey, GJ 1132b and LHS


Mass–radius curve for extrasolar Earth-like planets and ocean planets
When extrasolar planets transit their parent stars
When extrasolar planets are observed to transit their parent stars, we are granted unprecedented access to their physical properties. It is only for transiting planets that we are permitted direct
An extrasolar planetary system with three Neptune-mass planets
Simulations show that the system of three Neptune-mass planets orbiting the nearby star HD 69830 is in a dynamically stable configuration and theoretical calculations favour a mainly rocky composition for both inner planets, while the outer planet probably has a significant gaseous envelope surrounding its rocky/icy core.
High-resolution simulations of the final assembly of Earth-like planets. 2. Water delivery and planetary habitability.
A new model for water delivery to terrestrial planets in dynamically calm systems, with low-eccentricity or low-mass giant planets-such systems may be very common in the Galaxy is presented.
The effect of tidal locking on the magnetospheric and atmospheric evolution of ``Hot Jupiters''
We study the interaction between the planetary magnetosphere and atmosphere of the close-in extrasolar planets HD 209458b and OGLE-TR-56b with the stellar wind during the evolution of their host
Exotic Earths: Forming Habitable Worlds with Giant Planet Migration
This simulation of terrestrial planet growth during and after giant planet migration is applied to close-in giant planets thought to form far from their host stars and migrate inward, through the terrestrial planet zone, via torques with a massive gaseous disk.
Formation and structure of the three Neptune-mass planets system around HD 69830
Since the discovery of the first giant planet outside the solar system in 1995 (Mayor & Queloz 1995, Nature, 378, 355), more than 180 extrasolar planets have been discovered. With improving detection
Biomarkers in the transmission spectrum of Earth-size transiting planets
A variety of terrestrial planets with different physical parameters and exotic atmospheres might plausibly exist outside our Solar System, waiting to be detected by the next generation of
