Paper Abstract

The physical basis of the detection and characterisation of extrasolar Earth-like planets and of biosignatures in the reflected light and thermal emission regimes is reviewed. Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages, including artefacts, in the determination of planet physical parameters (mass, size, albedo, surface and atmospheric conditions etc) and biosignatures.
