Talk given at the 2020 DDA Meeting. Large planetary spin-orbit misalignments (obliquities) may strongly influence atmospheric circulation and tidal heating in the planet. A promising avenue to generate obliquities is via spin-orbit resonances, where the spin and orbital precession frequencies of the planet cross each other as the system evolves in ...
