EXOA8 | Exoplanet characterization of (super-)Earths and sub-Neptunes

EXOA8

Exoplanet characterization of (super-)Earths and sub-Neptunes
Co-organized by TP/OPS
Conveners: Lena Noack, Heike Rauer | Co-conveners: Theresa Lueftinger, Ana Maria Heras, Kevin Heng, Tim Lichtenberg

With JWST scientifically operational since mid-2022, and PLATO and ARIEL on the horizon, we are now in the middle of a decade of exoplanet characterization. We therefore invite abstracts to this session with a focus on the characterization of rocky to sub-Neptune. This includes modeling of their internal chemical composition and structure, density and age, laboratory experiments and ab initio calculations, thermal evolution models, and atmospheric evolution models. We also invite abstracts focussing on the observational capability of current and upcoming space missions and ground-based telescopes to characterize low-mass to Neptune-size exoplanets. Our aim with this session is to foster the discussion between modelers, experimentalists and observers especially in preparation for the PLATO and ARIEL space missions.
