Imprints of Magnetic fields in Exoplanets

Project description

Models of exoplanetary magnetic fields look for shining giants and habitable worlds

All the planets in our solar system, except Venus and Mars, have a magnetic field, each with its peculiar features. This is rather remarkable and reflects the outstanding variety of the internal structure of our neighbouring planets. Aside from shielding us from charged solar particles and helping us navigate, our magnetic field may have played an important role in the evolution of life on Earth, retaining oceans and the atmosphere. The EU-funded IMAGINE project is exploring the evolution and imprints of exoplanetary magnetic fields on billion-year time scales, with the goal of helping us find inflated gas giants shining in radio and habitable rocky worlds.
