Planets and their evolution

Planets and their evolution

In order to link planetary population synthesis modells with observations, evolution calculations for single planets are needed. This is obvious as no planet is observed at an age of zero. We use atmospheric and structure modells planets, as well as atmospheric loss and bloating mechanisms for giant and rocky planets to develop our understanding of planetary populations.

Prediction of exoplanetary spectrae (PhD project)

Wind structures are important for some bloating mechanisms to work. As sideproduct from my calculations we get heat and wind maps at any pressure-level in the planetary atmosphere.
We see here mildly nonlinear Kelvin and Rossby waves in interaction as solutions to the primitive atmospheric dynamics equations.
