Cloud Formation In Exoplanetary Atmospheres
This invited review for young researchers presents key ideas on cloud formation as key part for virtual laboratories for exoplanet atmospheres.
The basic concepts are presented, followed by utilising a time-scale analysis to disentangle process hierarchies. The kinetic approach to cloud formation modelling is described in some detail to allow the discussion of cloud structures as prerequisite for future extrasolar weather forecasts.
