The PLATO atmospheres workshop was held online via webex on December 8-10 2021.
The talks as PDF documents can be found here.
The programme and the list of participants are given in the navigation bar, on the left.
The sessions and the opening talk speakers (invited) were:
(1) Joint strategies for exoplanet missions (Giovanna Tinetti)
(2) Hot Jupiters (Vivien Parmentier)
(3) Sub-Neptunes (Eliza Kempton)
(4) (Hot) Rocky Exoplanets (Mark Hammond)
It is possible with PLATO to constrain basic atmospheric information e.g. to observe possible phase curves hence albedo and meridional transport for some favorable Ultra Hot Jupiter or/and Hot Jupiter atmospheres, or to constrain bulk composition via the Rayleigh Absorption Feature with the Fast Camera Filters, or to distinguish different types of massive early steam atmospheres from PLATO measurements of planetary radius and age. PLATO can also reveal the time-variation of the occultation depths. Occultation mapping is possible with the ultrahigh-precision and very short cadence PLATO light curves to map exoplanetary light distributions.
We welcome contributions from the exoplanetay science community at large on hot and cool terrestrial planetary atmospheres. This includes data analyses and modeling studies on atmospheric composition, climate, escape, clouds, retrieval, phase curves and evolution of hot and temperate rocky exoplanets.
The organizers particularly welcome a clear demonstrable link with the PLATO mission science goals.
