Unlocking the Atmospheres of Extrasolar Worlds

HD 189733

Extrasolar planets now number in the thousands, spanning a wide range of orbital and physical properties. Unlocking the atmospheric properties of these exotic worlds using facilities such as the Spitzer Space Telescope and Hubble Space Telescope have enabled us to probe chemistry, radiation and weather regimes beyond our own solar system. This talk will describe key observations to understand the atmospheres of extrasolar planets with comparisons to three-dimensional models, and how these models inform comparative exoplanet studies using current and future ground- and space-based telescopes, including the James Webb Space Telescope.
