Research: 3D Modelling of Reflection Spectra of Hot Jupiters

Progress in astrophysics only will be achieved by combining new observational data with the appropriate theoretical modelling which is required to understand observed data and to calculate physical parameters and properties of the observed systems. By means of modelling of radiative processes, we can understand how the light goes trough planetary atmospheres of giant planets. We use the PHOENIX code to calculate reflection spectra of hot Jupiters whose atmosphere is a scattering dominated environments. We are modelling 3D scattering cases in order to have a feeling on how the reflection spectra depend on physical properties such as opacity, scattering, albedo and so forth.
