" Are the atmospheres of (terrestrial) exoplanets detectable from Earth? Is it possible to characterize these atmospheres, their composition, their temperature? How can we determine the habitability of discovered exoplanets? To address these fundamental questions, this project aims at developing a consistent retrieval system for the interpretation of spectroscopic data of exoplanetary atmospheres. It is the first to investigate consistently the retrieval process for general types of exoplanets, ranging from (hot) terrestrial planets to hot Neptunes and Jupiters. "
