Virtual Laboratories for Exoplanets and Planet Forming Disks

Project description

Physical and chemical fingerprints of planet-forming disks offer clues to exoplanet diversity

Newly formed planetary systems outside the solar system (exoplanets) leave imprints in their disks – physical and chemical signatures detected only by high-resolution observations. Thorough understanding of the physical and chemical properties of these disks will not only reveal more about the birth of the solar system but also help to better contextualise the vast diversity of exoplanets in the universe. The EU-funded CHAMELEON project will develop advanced numerical and statistical methods for a detailed analysis of current and future protoplanetary disk and exoplanet observation data. Deriving input from astrophysics, computational chemistry, geoscience, mathematics and computer science, these 'virtual laboratories' will play a key role in interpreting poorly explored physical and chemical conditions in planet-forming disks and exoplanet atmospheres.
