New view on exoplanet transits: Transit of Venus described using three-dimensional solar atmosphere STAGGER-grid simulations
Context. An important benchmark for current observational techniques and theoretical modeling of exoplanet atmospheres is the transit of Venus (ToV). Stellar activity and, in particular, convection-related surface structures, potentially cause fluctuations that can affect the transit light curves. Surface convection simulations can help interpreting the ToV as well as other transits outside our solar system. Aims. We used the realistic three-dimensional (3D) radiative hydrodynamical (RHD)...[Show more]
