Abstract

Many models are used to study the possible atmospheric conditions of extrasolar gas giants, in particular “hot Jupiters”, gas giant planets closer than 0.1 AU to their parent stars, with orbital periods of the order of a few Earth days. It is important that the respective responses of these models to this relatively new regime be known, allowing the effects of using different models to be understood. Here, the use of an adapted form of the PUMA model is explored by carrying out an intercomparison test.
