Model Spectra of the First Potentially Habitable Super-Earth - Gl581d

Assumes that it is a terrestrial planet with climate dominated by carbonate-silicate cycle. This may not necessarily be accurate for super-Earths though...

More modelling of various scenarios for Gliese 581d:

Spectroscopic characterization of the atmospheres of potentially habitable planets: GL 581 d as a model case study

Question asked is whether we could infer surface conditions on a transiting planet with properties similar to Gliese 581d. Turns out it would be quite challenging!
