Fig. 6


Emission spectrum of WASP-121b compared to five different global circulation models of WASP-121b assuming different atmospheric composition: solar, enhanced metallicity (×3), without H, without TiO/VO, and without water dissociation. A model for an isothermal atmosphere at 2700 K is shown as a dashed line for comparison. Lines indicating the main spectral bands have been added for clarity. All the models are self-consistently calculating the thermal structure of the planet, contrary to the models of Fig. 2 that were post-processed using the thermal structure from the solar composition model.
