Planets Twice the Size of Earth: Orbits, Radii, and Occurrence

Monday 17 October 2011, by Geoff Marcy (University of California, Berkeley)

The talk will report the observed distribution of planet radii, orbital distances, and occurrence frequency for planets with orbital periods less than 50 days around Solar-type stars. We draw from extensive Kepler measurements that offer good completeness for planets with radii as small as 2.0 Earth-radii.
