Assessing Retrievals of Exoplanetary Transit Spectra

Transit spectroscopy provides a unique opportunity to study atmospheres of exoplanets. In this poster we discuss the formalisms and tools employed to investigate spectroscopic signatures of exoplanets using HST transmission spectra. In particular, we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of different forward models and retrieval studies in the literature, including different statistical approaches (e.g. Bayesian, machine learning, etc).
