Jovian planet


  • WordNet 3.6
    • n Jovian planet any of the four outermost planets in the solar system; much larger than Earth and gaseous in nature (like Jupiter)
    • ***


In literature:

Jupiter is the first of the outer and greater planets, the major, or Jovian, group.
"Other Worlds" by Garrett P. Serviss
Relate to me now all that has passed since the Jovians first landed on your planet.
"Giants on the Earth" by Sterner St. Paul Meek
The Earthmen were baffled by the bland indifference of the Jovians to their mother planet.
"The Metal Moon" by Everett C. Smith

In news:

And despite its huge girth, Jupiter spins faster than any other planet, so that one Jovian day is less than 10 Earth hours.

In science:

Based on the lack of planet detections in their survey of 90 M dwarfs, Endl et al. (2006) estimate that fewer than 1.27% of stars with M∗ < 0.6 M⊙ harbor Jovian mass planets with a < 1 AU, which stands in stark contrast to the 5% occurrence rate of gas giants around solar–type stars (Marcy et al. 2005a).

This finding seems to indicate that protoplanetary disks around low–mass stars produce Jovian planets at a decreased rate compared to the disks of Sun–like stars.

This prediction for Jupiter has lent support to core-accretion theories with comparatively small cores (Pollack et al. 1996), late-stage core erosion scenarios (Guillot 2004), or suggesting that jovian planets are able to form directly from gases without a triggering core (Boss 2007).

The challenge lies in having such a Jovian-mass planet produce highly variable transit depths.

The planet is assumed to have a mass MP = MJ and a radius RP = RJ, where MJ and RJ are Jovian mass and radius, respectively.
On the Survivability and Metamorphism of Tidally Disrupted Giant Planets: the Role of Dense Cores
For non-Jovian Tro jans, the disturbing forces due to the other planets are typically larger than those caused by the primary planet itself.
Asteroids in the Inner Solar System I - Existence
Rudnitskij closed his presentation with the provocative suggestion that Hα flares may be due to a Jovian-sized planet in an eccentric orbit at a few AU, which has survived the red giant phase and excites strong atmospheric shocks during each periastron passage.
Millimetre Science with the Upgraded Australia Telescope
With other problems, such as black hole accretion disks, the gas accretion during the formation of Jovian planets or the complex shock structure in the Galactic center, SNSPH has its advantages and disadvantages over grid-based codes.
SNSPH: A Parallel 3-D Smoothed Particle Radiation Hydrodynamics Code
To form a Jovian planet by core-accretion processes (e.g., Pollack et al. 1996) takes upward of 10 Myr.
First Fruits of the Spitzer Space Telescope: Galactic and Solar System Studies
The discovery of Gl 86 b a few years later was another milestone, as it showed that Jovian planets can also form and survive in the much closer spectroscopic binaries.
Probing the Impact of Stellar Duplicity on Planet Occurrence with Spectroscopic and Imaging Observations
In many instances, the precision achieved by these techniques is at least good enough to search for Jovian planets around the primary star, meaning that Doppler surveys for circumprimary giant planets in close binaries are feasible.
Probing the Impact of Stellar Duplicity on Planet Occurrence with Spectroscopic and Imaging Observations
In addition to the encouraging results obtained thus far, the expectation that terrestrial planets form alongside their Jovian counterparts suggests that discoveries are limited by instrumental sensitivity rather than the availability of planets.
Probing the Impact of Stellar Duplicity on Planet Occurrence with Spectroscopic and Imaging Observations
It can easily be seen from the preceding table that our planetary system is far from being chemically homogenous;at first sight,the well known d ivision on the terrestrial and jovian planets is clearly visible.
