Transmission spectrum measured against the forward atmospheric model grids. Top: The best fit for each model grid (represented by solid colored lines; PICASO 3.0, ATMO, PHOENIX), corresponds to the planetary spectrum (Eureka reduction!) with χ ν 2 ≤ 1.22. All individual best fits prefer at least solar metallicity and substantial cloud cover. Also represented by a gray dotted line is an atmospheric model of solar metallicity, stellar C/O ratio, demonstrating the lack of methane uptake observed in the spectrum. Because we can set an upper limit on the abundance of CH, the preferred C/O ratio found by the model grids is 4 substellar. Bottom: Residuals of each best fit, represented by the model spectrum subtracted from the reduced spectrum and divided by the transit depth uncertainty. The residuals show wavelength-dependent correlations, the origin of which is unknown and left for future study. — astro-ph.EP

Measuring metallicity and the carbon-oxygen (C/O) ratio in exoplanet atmospheres is a fundamental step in limiting the dominant chemical processes at work and, if in equilibrium, revealing the history of the formation of planets.

Transmission spectroscopy provides the necessary means by limiting the abundances of oxygenated and carbonaceous species; however, this requires wide wavelength coverage, moderate spectral resolution, and high precision which together are not achievable with previous observatories.

Now that JWST has begun its scientific operations, we are able to observe exoplanets at previously unexplored wavelengths and spectral resolutions. Here, we report time-series observations of the transiting exoplanet WASP-39b using JWST’s near-infrared camera (NIRCam). The long-wavelength spectroscopic and short-wavelength photometric light curves span from 2.0 to 4.0 μm, exhibit minimal systematics, and reveal well-defined molecular absorption features in the spectrum of the planet. Specifically, we detect gaseous H2O in the atmosphere and place an upper limit on the abundance of CH4.

The otherwise prominent CO2 feature at 2.8 μm is largely masked by H2O. The best-fitting chemical equilibrium models favor an atmospheric metallicity of 1-100× solar (i.e. enrichment in elements heavier than helium relative to the Sun) and a carbon-oxygen ratio (C /O) substellar. The inferred high metallicity and low C/O ratio may indicate significant accretion of solid materials during planet formation or disequilibrium processes in the upper atmosphere.

What is a karmic relationship? Meaning, Signs and How to Break Them | Marla Martenson https://6toros6.com/what-is-a-karmic-relationship-meaning-signs-and-how-to-break-them-marla-martenson/ Tue, 15 Nov 2022 19:07:55 +0000 https://6toros6.com/what-is-a-karmic-relationship-meaning-signs-and-how-to-break-them-marla-martenson/

So many of us are programmed from a young age, into adulthood, to dream of having that fairy tale relationship and a “happily ever after”. Some of us spend our entire lives looking for our “soul mate” or “The One”.

But among the relationships we stumble over along the way – usually without acknowledging them – are karmic relationships.

Although being in a karmic relationship can feel like stepping on a landmine, they have the power to teach us more about love and ourselves than any other relationship we encounter along the way. road.

What is a karmic relationship?

Although there is currently no clinical and scientific data to prove whether or not karmic relationships exist, writer, reiki master and clairvoyant Amanda Linette Meder describes karmic relationships as “a romantic bond formed with someone of your soul group,” notinh these relationships are “designed to heal past life lessons and pain.”

Karmic relationships are the type of relationships that no one necessarily wants but probably has at some point in their life, at least once.

However, it is important to note that karmic relationships do not always come in the form of romantic relationships. It can be friendships, acquaintances or your family of origin.

Nevertheless, all karmic relationships have one thing in common: they come into your life to teach you a lesson – and probably won’t last very long once that lesson has been learned and you or the other person are ready to go. ‘to cancel. .
