Theory of Precipitating Dust Formation in Substellar Atmospheres

C. Helling, P. Woitke

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A kinetic description of dust formation including gravitational settling has been presented in Woitke & Helling (2003a). An application to a prescribed brown dwarf atmosphere structure shows, that a stratified large-scale distribution has to be expected for the dust as well as for the molecular content of the atmosphere.
