  • Knowing the bulk elemental abundances of an exoplanetary atmosphere is not an easy task, but it is crucial to understand the formation history of planets. The purpose of this work is to show that the observability of TiO features at optical wavelengths in the transmission spectra of hot Jupiter atmospheres is sensitive to the bulk chemical properties of the atmosphere. For that, we run a grid of chemical models which include TiO formation and destruction, for the ultra-hot Jupiter WASP-19b and… CONTINUE READING
