Toolkit for atmospheric characterization of exoplanets and brown dwarfs

Project description

species is a toolkit for atmospheric characterization of exoplanets and brown dwarfs. It provides a coherent framework for spectral and photometric analysis which builds on publicly-available data from various resources such as spectral and photometric libraries, atmospheric models, evolutionary models, photometry of directly imaged planets, and filter transmission profiles. All data are stored in a central database and there are tools available for extracting, inspecting, analyzing, and plotting of data, models, and results. The package has been released on PyPI and is actively developed and maintained on Github.
