Good Combination of the Rossiter-McLaughlin Measurements and Direct Imaging Observations
National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, 2-21-1 Osawa, Mitaka, Tokyo, 181-8588, Japan
We introduce a novel methodology to distinguish planetary migration mechanisms by a combination of Rossiter-McLaughlin measurements and direct imaging observations. The methodology is especially useful to specify a planetary migration mechanism one-by-one for an eccentric or tilted planet. We present an example of the application of the methodology for HAT-P-7 based on our observations with the 8.2m Subaru Telescope.
