Abstract

We describe the potential of high-resolution cross-correlation spectroscopy on the Extremely Large Telescopes to 1) robustly measure atmospheric circulation and planetary rotation for hot Jupiters, and 2) measure atmospheric mass-loss and extract atmospheric composition information for sub-Neptunes, super-Earths and disintegrating planets.
