The MUSCLES Treasury Survey. IV. Scaling relations for ultraviolet, Ca ii K, and energetic particle fluxes from M dwarfs

Abstract:

Characterizing the UV spectral energy distribution (SED) of an exoplanet host star is critically important for assessing its planet’s potential habitability, particularly for M dwarfs, as they are prime targets for current and nearterm exoplanet characterization efforts and atmospheric models predict that their UV radiation can produce photochemistry on habitable zone planets different from that on Earth. To derive ground-based proxies for UV emission for use when Hubble Space Telescope (HST)...
