Wild and Windy Exoplanets

A team of US and UK-based researchers has been using MITgcm to explore the effect of disequilibrium chemistry on the atmospheric circulation and radiative transfer characteristics of Hot Jupiters.

Strange New Worlds

This month we focus on research using MITgcm to model atmospheres on Jupiter-like exoplanets showcasing work by recent University of Arizona, Lunar and Planetary Laboratory graduate, Nikole Lewis.


Modeling internal convection on a gas giant using MITjcmThis month we look at work by Yohai Kaspi (a NOAA Climate and Global Change postdoctoral fellow currently working with Tapio Schneider at Caltech) who has been using MITgcm to model the atmosphere on a Jupiter-like gas giant…
