Abstract

James Webb Space Telescope will enable detailed analysis of molecular abundances, including but not limited to all the major carbon- and oxygen- bearing species in hot Jupiter atmospheres. This will allow determination of the carbon-to-oxygen ratio, an essential number for planet formation models and allowing comparison with Juno’s value for Jupiter.
