    • A large active wave trapped in Jupiter's equator 

      Legarreta, Jon; Barrado-Izaguirre, Naiara; García Melendo, Enrique José; Sanchez-Lavega, Agustin; Gómez-Forrellad, Josep M. (EDP Sciences, 2017-02-11)
      Article
      Open Access
      Context. A peculiar atmospheric feature was observed in the equatorial zone (EZ) of Jupiter between September and December 2012 in ground-based and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images. This feature consisted of two low ...
    • A planetary-scale disturbance in the most intense Jovian atmospheric jet from JunoCam and ground-based observations 

      Sanchez-Lavega, Agustin; Rogers, John H; Orton, Glenn; García Melendo, Enrique José; Legarreta, Jon; Colas, Françoise; Dauvergne, J; Hueso, Ricardo; Rojas, Jose Félix; Perez-Hoyos, Santiago; Mendikoa, Iñigo; Iñurrigarro, P; Gómez-Forrellad, Josep M.; Momary, T; Hansen, C. J.; Eichstaedt, G.; Miles, P; Wesley, A (2017-05-25)
      Article
      Open Access
      We describe a huge planetary-scale disturbance in the highest-speed Jovian jet at latitude 23.5°N that was first observed in October 2016 during the Juno perijove-2 approach. An extraordinary outburst of four plumes was ...
    • Discovery of XO-6b: A Hot Jupiter Transiting a Fast Rotating F5 Star on an Oblique Orbit 

      Crouzet, N.; McCullough, Peter; Long, D.; Montañes Rodriguez, Pilar; Lecavelier des Etangs, A; Ribas, Ignasi; Bourrier, V.; Hébrard, G.; Vilardell, Francesc; Deleuil, M.; Herrero, Enrique; García Melendo, Enrique José; Akhenak, L.; Foote, Cindy; Gary, B.; Benny, P.; Guillot, T.; Conjat, M.; Mékarnia, D.; Garlitz, J.; Burke, C. J.; Courcol, B.; Demangeon, O (2017-02-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Only a few hot Jupiters are known to orbit around fast rotating stars. These exoplanets are harder to detect and characterize and may be less common than around slow rotators. Here, we report the discovery of the transiting ...
    • Jupiter as an exoplanet: UV to NIR transmission spectrum reveals hazes, a Na layer, and possibly stratospheric H2O-ice clouds 

      Montañés-Ridríguez, Pilar; González-Merino, B.; Pallé, Enric; López-Puertas, Manuel; García Melendo, Enrique José (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2015-02-26)
      Article
      Open Access
      Currently, the analysis of transmission spectra is the most successful technique to probe the chemical composition of exoplanet atmospheres. However, the accuracy of these measurements is constrained by observational ...
    • Study: Numerical implementation of a multilayer Shallow Water atmospheric model 

      Galiot Pérez, Biel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-22)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Els fenòmens atmosfèrics de gran escala es poden simular a través d'una aproximació bidimensional del fluid, on es considera que aquest es troba limitat a una capa molt més ampla que profunda. El software actual per a ...
