Chemical variation with altitude and longitude on exo-Neptunes: Predictions for Ariel phase-curve observations
Using two-dimensional (2D) thermal structure models and pseudo-2D chemical kinetics models, we explore how atmospheric temperatures and composition change as a function of altitude and longitude
Exoplanetary Monte Carlo radiative transfer with correlated-k – I. Benchmarking transit and emission observables
Current observational data of exoplanets are providing increasing detail of their 3D atmospheric structures. As characterization efforts expand in scope, the need to develop consistent 3D
Implications of three-dimensional chemical transport in hot Jupiter atmospheres: Results from a consistently coupled chemistry-radiation-hydrodynamics model
We present results from a set of simulations using a fully coupled three-dimensional (3D) chemistry-radiation-hydrodynamics model and investigate the effect of transport of chemical species by the
The 3D Thermal, Dynamical, and Chemical Structure of the Atmosphere of HD 189733b: Implications of Wind-driven Chemistry for the Emission Phase Curve
In this paper we present 3D atmospheric simulations of the hot Jupiter HD 189733b under two different scenarios: local chemical equilibrium and including advection of the chemistry by the resolved

We present results from 3D radiative-hydrodynamical simulations of HD 209458b with a fully coupled treatment of clouds using the EddySed code, critically, including cloud radiative feedback via
Idealised simulations of the deep atmosphere of hot Jupiters
Context. The anomalously large radii of hot Jupiters has long been a mystery. However, by combining both theoretical arguments and 2D models, a recent study has suggested that the vertical advection
Trends in Spitzer Secondary Eclipses
It is well established that the magnitude of the incident stellar flux is the single most important factor in determining the day–night temperature gradients and atmospheric chemistries of
Atmospheric regimes and trends on exoplanets and brown dwarfs
A planetary atmosphere is the outer gas layer of a planet. Besides its scientific significance among the first and most accessible planetary layers observed from space, it is closely connected with
The impact of mixing treatments on cloud modelling in 3D simulations of hot Jupiters
We present results of 3D hydrodynamical simulations of HD209458b including a coupled, radiatively active cloud model (eddysed). We investigate the role of the mixing by replacing the default
The Limits of the Primitive Equations of Dynamics for Warm, Slowly Rotating Small Neptunes and Super Earths
We present significant differences in the simulated atmospheric flow for warm, tidally locked small Neptunes and super Earths (based on a nominal GJ 1214b) when solving the simplified, and commonly

Solar Chemical Abundances Determined with a CO5BOLD 3D Model Atmosphere
In the last decade, the photospheric solar metallicity as determined from spectroscopy experienced a remarkable downward revision. Part of this effect can be attributed to an improvement of atomic
The atmospheric chemistry of the warm Neptune GJ 3470b: Influence of metallicity and temperature on the CH4/CO ratio
Current observation techniques are able to probe the atmosphere of some giant exoplanets and get some clues about their atmospheric composition. However, the chemical compositions derived from
The need for laboratory work to aid in the understanding of exoplanetary atmospheres
Advancements in our understanding of exoplanetary atmospheres, from massive gas giants down to rocky worlds, depend on the constructive challenges between observations and models. We are now on a
Possible thermochemical disequilibrium in the atmosphere of the exoplanet GJ 436b
The detection of planetary thermal emission from the dayside of GJ 436b at multiple infrared wavelengths during the secondary eclipse is reported, finding a high CO abundance and a substantial methane (CH4) deficiency relative to thermochemical equilibrium models for the predicted hydrogen-dominated atmosphere.
Accuracy tests of radiation schemes used in hot Jupiter global circulation models
The treatment of radiation transport in global circulation models (GCMs) is crucial for correctly describing Earth and exoplanet atmospheric dynamics processes. The two-stream approximation and
