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.

Keywords

Roche Lobe Line Core Host Star Energetic Neutral Atom James Webb Space Telescope 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
