Fig. 5


Conductive (top red curves) and adiabatic (bottom black curves) thermal gradient profiles for Jupiter and Saturn. The dashed curves correspond to the mean thermal gradient for models with 104.5 layers for Jupiter, and 105.4 for Saturn. The shaded area represents the allowed range of super adiabaticity in presence of semiconvection, consistent with the observational constraints.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
