Paleobiology & Biosignatures: December 2013


Most models used to predict or fit exoplanet transmission spectra do not include all the effects of atmospheric refraction.

Organic haze plays a key role in many planetary processes ranging from influencing the radiation budget of an atmosphere to serving as a source of prebiotic molecules on the surface.

I just got off the phone with Dale Andersen who is at Lake Obersee, Antarctica.

Understanding a planet's atmosphere is a necessary condition for understanding not only the planet itself, but also its formation, structure, evolution, and habitability.

We present a new method to probe atmospheric pressure on Earthlike planets using (O2-O2) dimers in the near-infrared.
