  • We have developed an evolutionary turbulent model of the Jovian subnebula consistent with the extended core accretion formation model of Jupiter. This model takes into account the vertical structure of the subnebula, as well as the evolution of the surface density as given by an α-disk model and is used to calculate the thermodynamical conditions in the subdisk for different values of the viscosity parameter. We show that the Jovian subnebula evolves in two different phases during its lifetime… CONTINUE READING
