spectral characterization and inference for exoplanet science
species is a toolkit for atmospheric characterization of directly imaged exoplanets. It provides a coherent framework for spectral and photometric analysis which builds on publicly-available data and models from various resources. There are tools available for both grid retrievals and free retrievals with Bayesian inference, color-magnitude and color-color diagrams, empirical spectral analysis, spectral and photometric calibration, analysis of emission lines, and synthetic photometry. The package has been released on PyPI and is actively developed and maintained on Github.
