Tidal flows in extrasolar planets and stars

  Research Group: School of Mathematics
Since 1995 astronomers have discovered and partially characterised several thousand extrasolar planets. Many planets have masses similar to Jupiter's, and orbit their host stars in only a few Earth days -- a fascinating class of planets that we refer to as hot Jupiters. Read more

Linking exoplanet detection to formation: population synthesis

The possibility of planets orbiting other stars has been a topic of fascination for centuries. We are the first generation that has brought these planets – now known as exoplanets – from the realm of science-fiction into that of science. Read more

(STFC) BUILDING ROCKY PLANETS – CONSTRAINING MAGMA OCEAN BEHAVIOUR WITH EXPERIMENTAL PETROLOGY

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
This project will investigate the evolution of rocky planets, with a particular focus on investigating how evolving magma oceans produce the source regions from which different suites of planetary rock samples are ultimately derived. Read more

Where do planets come from?

Abstract. Planetary systems form very early in a star’s life, usually when the parent star is still within its birth star-forming region. Read more

Volatile evolution during planet formation

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Planet formation begins with the growth of dust grains from micron sizes to the millimetre sizes seen in proto-planetary discs. However, the processes that convert these millimetre-sized grains into planets are poorly understood. Read more

Effective Transport Coefficients in Extreme Dynamic Materials

The DPhil in Computational Discovery is a multidisciplinary programme spanning projects in Advanced Molecular Simulations, Machine Learning and Quantum Computing to develop new tools and methodologies for life sciences discovery. Read more

JWST studies of Brown Dwarf Variability

Brown dwarfs are objects in the mass gap between stars and planets. Lacking the contaminating light from a host star, observations of brown dwarfs can provide insight into what to expect from future observations of massive, Jupiter-like exoplanets. Read more

(STFC) THE ATMOSPHERIC EVOLUTION OF MARS

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
Project overview. Mars’ atmospheric evolution was marked by an early, dense CO. 2. -rich atmosphere giving sufficient greenhouse warming to enable liquid water at the surface, followed by atmospheric loss leaving a less dense atmosphere with cold, arid surface conditions. Read more

Energy transfer through Alfvén waves in solar system plasmas (Advert ref: STFC23/EE/MPEE/WATT)

The space in our solar system is home to a tenuous but highly energetic plasma. A host of different electromagnetic waves permeate this space, exchanging energy and momentum with the charged particles of the plasma. Read more
