Photochemistry in Terrestrial Exoplanet Atmospheres I : Photochemistry Model and Benchmark Cases

  title={Photochemistry in Terrestrial Exoplanet Atmospheres I : Photochemistry Model and Benchmark Cases},
  author={Renyu Hu and Sara Seager and William Bains},
We present a comprehensive photochemistry model for exploration of the chemical composition of terrestrial exoplanet atmospheres. The photochemistry model is designed from the ground up to have the capacity to treat all types of terrestrial planet atmospheres, ranging from oxidizing through reducing, which makes the code suitable for applications for the wide range of anticipated terrestrial exoplanet compositions. The one-dimensional chemical transport model treats up to 800 chemical reactions… CONTINUE READING
