AGU 2016 SESSION P006: DETECTION AND DIRECT IMAGING OF HABITABLE EXOPLANETS – PROGRESS AND FUTURE

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to our session entitled “Detection And Direct Imaging Of Habitable Exoplanets: Progress And Future” scheduled at the AGU Fall Meeting at San Francisco, December 12-16 2016.

Abstract deadline: 3 August 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT.

Submit an abstract to this session.

Session ID#: 13664
Session description:

This session consists in a discussion on the potential of new and future facilities and modeling efforts designed to detect, image and characterize habitable exoplanets, studying their formation, evolution and also the existence of possible biospheres. Topics to be covered in
this session include signs of exoplanet habitability and global biosignatures that can be sought with upcoming instrumentation; instrument requirements and technologies to detect these markers; strategies for target selection and prioritization; and impacts of planetary system properties, ground-based and space telescope architectures, and impacts of instrument capabilities on the yield of potentially inhabited exoplanets.
