Clouds for habitable exoplanets around red dwarf stars

Post #1by DrJMOS » 16.08.2020, 19:17

Most of the exoplanets around of red dwarf stars are tidal locking (also called gravitational locking, captured rotation and spin–orbit locking), in the best-known case, occurs when an orbiting astronomical body always has the same face toward the object it is orbiting. This is known as synchronous rotation: the tidally locked body takes just as long to rotate around its own axis as it does to revolve around its partner.

If the exoplanet have liquid water the face that always is front to the star will have a big hurricane

Hi Daly, your planet looks warm and desertic in the center, perhaps you need a modified hurricane with a big eye in the center and only clouds near to the terminator or twilight zone

I am not very convinced, I have to add two hurricanes because it is formed by the combination of temperature xd
