• Contributions to absorption line weakening in the Earth's atmosphere 

    Penner, Kyle; Allende Prieto, Carlos (2008)
    Daytime skylight is an imperfect representation of the solar spectrum. Scattering of light in the Earth’s atmosphere changes the depths of solar absorption lines. This scattering is due to either molecules or dust grains ...

    GPS radio occultation events observed between 24 July and 17 November 2008 by the IGOR occultation receiver aboard the TerraSAR-X satellite are processed and analyzed. The comparison of 15 327 refractivity profiles with ...
  • Formation and Aging of Secondary Organic Aerosol from Toluene: Changes in Chemical Composition, Volatility, and Hygroscopicity 

    Ruiz, L. Hildebrandt; Paciga, A. L.; Cerully, K. M.; Nenes, A.; Donahue, N. M.; Pandis, S. N. (2015)
    Secondary organic aerosol (SOA) is transformed after its initial formation, but this chemical aging of SOA is poorly understood. Experiments were conducted in the Carnegie Mellon environmental chamber to form secondary ...
  • Geographic and Seasonal Distributions of CO Transport Pathways and Their Roles in Determining CO Centers in the Upper Troposphere 

    Huang, L.; Fu, R.; Jiang, J. H.; Wright, J. S.; Luo, M. (2012)
    Past studies have identified a variety of pathways by which carbon monoxide (CO) may be transported from the surface to the tropical upper troposphere (UT); however, the relative roles that these transport pathways play ...

    The Kepler mission has recently announced the discovery of Kepler-10 b, the smallest exoplanet discovered to date and the first rocky planet found by the spacecraft. A second, 45 day period transit-like signal present in ...
  • Kepler-14B: A Massive Hot Jupiter Transiting An F Star in A Close Visual Binary 

    Buchhave, Lars A.; Latham, David W.; Carter, Joshua A.; Desert, Jean-Michel; Torres, Guillermo; Adams, Elisabeth R.; Bryson, Stephen T.; Charbonneau, David B.; Ciardi, David R.; Kulesa, Craig; Dupree, Andrea K.; Fischer, Debra A.; Fressin, Francois; Gautier, Thomas N., III; Gilliland, Ronald L.; Howell, Steve B.; Isaacson, Howard; Jenkins, Jon M.; Marcy, Geoffrey W.; McCarthy, Donald W.; Rowe, Jason F.; Batalha, Natalie M.; Borucki, William J.; Brown, Timothy M.; Caldwell, Douglas A.; Christiansen, Jessie L.; Cochran, William D.; Deming, Drake; Dunham, Edward W.; Everett, Mark; Ford, Eric B.; Fortney, Jonathan J.; Geary, John C.; Girouard, Forrest R.; Haas, Michael R.; Holman, Matthew J.; Horch, Elliott; Klaus, Todd C.; Knutson, Heather A.; Koch, David G.; Kolodziejczak, Jeffrey; Lissauer, Jack J.; Machalek, Pavel; Mullally, Fergal; Still, Martin D.; Quinn, Samuel N.; Seager, Sara; Thompson, Susan E.; Van Cleve, Jeffrey (2011-11)
    We present the discovery of a hot Jupiter transiting an F star in a close visual (0 ''.3 sky projected angular separation) binary system. The dilution of the host star's light by the nearly equal magnitude stellar companion ...
  • Modeling Io'S Sublimation-Driven Atmosphere: Gas Dynamics And Radiation Emission 

    Walker, A. C.; Gratiy, S. L.; Levin, D. A.; Goldstein, D. B.; Varghese, P. L.; Trafton, L. M.; Moore, C. H.; Stewart, B. (2009-12)
    Io's sublimation-driven atmosphere is modeled using the direct simulation Monte Carlo method. These rarefied gas dynamics simulations improve upon earlier models by using a three-dimensional domain encompassing the entire ...
