TESS Photometric Mapping of a Terrestrial Planet in the Habitable Zone: Detection of Clouds, Oceans, and Continents

no code implementations28 Mar 2019 Rodrigo Luger, Megan Bedell, Roland Vanderspek, Christopher J. Burke

To date, a handful of exoplanets have been photometrically mapped using phase-modulated reflection or emission from their surfaces, but the small amplitudes of such signals have limited previous maps almost exclusively to coarse dipolar features on hot giant planets.

TESS full orbital phase curve of the WASP-18b system

1 code implementation14 Nov 2018 Avi Shporer, Ian Wong, Chelsea X. Huang, Michael R. Line, Keivan G. Stassun, Tara Fetherolf, Stephen R. Kane, Luke G. Bouma, Tansu Daylan, Maximilian N. Guenther, George R. Ricker, David W. Latham, Roland Vanderspek, Sara Seager, Joshua N. Winn, Jon M. Jenkins, Ana Glidden, Zach Berta-Thompson, Eric B. Ting, Jie Li, Kari Haworth

The phase curve includes the transit, secondary eclipse, and sinusoidal modulations across the orbital phase shaped by the planet's atmospheric characteristics and the star-planet gravitational interaction.
