Title: Towards population studies of exoplanet atmospheres

Abstract: With NASA/ESA/CSA-JWST and ESA-Ariel, we are entering a new era of exoplanetary science. In the next decade, those revolutionary observatories will obtain high quality spectroscopic data for thousands of exoplanets, shifting our focus from the detection of other worlds to their characterization. Sucessfully characterizing a wide range of exoplanets will allow us to infer trends and answer major questions in our field: what are exoplanets made of? how do they form? In this presentation, I will discuss the challenges associated with the analysis of such extensive datasets, also highlighting key outcomes from population studies that have used previous instruments.

If you have any questions, contact the PALS hosts: Jacob Kloos (small bodies) and Matt Nixon (exoplanets).
