Hot blobs around nascent planets: Influence on migration and observabilityWe perform 3D radiation hydro simulations of Planet-Disk interaction. As a follow up on previous work (Klahr & Kley 2006) we study now the effects of radiation transport for lower mass planets (1-100 Mearth). We discuss the influence of proper thermodynamics on the migration rates and the possibilities to observe the planetary embryos early on in the womb of their mother disk.
