« Comprehensive modeling of exoplanetary atmospheres »

Mo Yang
Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris (Paris, France)

To date, there are many exciting discoveries of exoplanetary atmospheres from the extensive observations. Combining with the numerical simulations, we can further reveal the properties of exoplanets, such as mass loss rate, thermal structure, composition and even habitability.

In this talk, I will start with a brief introduction to the previous exciting observations of exoplanets. Then I will talk about our hydrodynamic model focused on the mass loss processes of exoplanetary atmosphere, and give an example of how we compare our modeling with observations and what we can learn from these works. At last I will present our plan of establishing a comprehensive framework for the study of exoplanetary atmospheres.
