Dayside temperature assuming a dayside-only redistribution of the incoming energy vs. gravity of the planet for all known transiting planets. The background shows the percentage of water that is dissociated at the 1.4 μm photospheric level calculated assuming water does not dissociate. If a planet is in a significantly dissociatedzone of the plot, then water dissociation needs to be taken into account to calculate the emission spectra of the planet. A stellar isochrone for an age of 4 Gyr from Baraffe et al. (1998) is shown as a dashed black line. Water dissociation should be important in all planets hotter than the 20% contour line. For clarity, only the name of planets orbiting stars with magnitude V smaller than 10.5 are shown for dayside temperatures lower than 2700 K.
