Abstract

The study of exoplanets is arguably the most exciting and fastest-growing field in astrophysics. Given the youth of exoplanet science, the field is strongly driven by observations. Here we summarise current knowledge of the atmospheres and wider environments of the known exoplanets giving particular emphasis on the upper atmospheres and the surrounding environment, rather than on the deeper atmospheric layers.
