Overstable Convective Modes of Rotating Hot Jupiters

27 Dec 2018 Lee Umin

We calculate overstable convective modes of uniformly rotating hot Jupiters, which have a convective core and a thin radiative envelope. Convective modes in rotating planets have complex frequency $\omega$ and are stabilized by rapid rotation so that their growth rates $\propto\omega_{\rm I}={\rm Im}(\omega)$ are much smaller than those for the non-rotating planets...
