Merovarolor

A hot world where the rain evaporates before striking the surface, Merovarolor is known for some potent electromagnetic storms that dance across its atmosphere. Merovarolor is a geographically unstable world with heavy volcanism and tectonic plate motion. Spectrographic analysis suggests that water may be present beneath the planet's surface.

Special Features

Features that draw attention to the planet.

Electromagnetic Storms

This planet has been observed from afar for many years and one of the main features that has drawn such attention have been the strange electromagnetic storms have trail across its atmosphere. Many contribute this to the heavy volcanism and the dense atmosphere's reaction to it, but no one has yet to study this phenomena.

Heavy Volcanism

Merovarolor has been observed suffering from unusually high amounts of volcanic activity. While this would normally cool a planet down due to ash in the atmosphere, the dense atmosphere combined with the almost perpetual eruptions have caused temperatures to soar.

Merovarolor Rings

Several rings of debris that orbit Merovarolor, the Merovarolor Rings contain mostly ice and dust making exploitation of the rings rather costly. It orbits the planet at an orbital radius of 403,256 kilometers at a period of 480 hours.
