Class Activities



Lecture summary, written by a student. The focus of this lecture is to discuss solar system planetary spectra. Students will become familiar with the equation of radiative transfer and one solution to that equation. They will also estimate transmission spectra flux ratios and the exoplanet transmission spectra and/or photometry.
