The Role of Clouds in Brown Dwarf and Extrasolar Giant Planet Atmospheres

  • Mark S. Marley (a1) (a2) and Andrew S. Ackerman (a3)

Abstract

Clouds and hazes are important throughout our solar system and in the atmospheres of brown dwarfs and extrasolar giant planets. Among the brown dwarfs, clouds control the colors and spectra of the L-dwarfs; the disappearance of clouds helps herald the arrival of the T-dwarfs. The structure and composition of clouds will be among the first remote-sensing results from the direct detection of extrasolar giant planets.
