How We Used Corner Plots in Our Astrophysics Study

Too Long; Didn't Read

Corner plots for the retrieval runs at the reference R and S/N are shown in this section. We grouped both the cloudy and the clear sky retrievals for each epoch in the same figure, in order to compare the results. Namely: Figure B.1 shows the corner plots of the two Modern Earth scenarios (MOD-CF and MODC); Figure B.2 shows the NOE Earth scenarios (NOE-CF and NOE-C); the GOE Earth scenarios (GOE-CF and GOE-C) are in Figure B.3; finally, the prebiotic scenarios (PRE-CF and PRE-C) are shown in Figure B.4.

Corner plots for the retrieval runs at the reference R and S/N are shown in this section. We grouped both the cloudy and the clear sky retrievals for each epoch in the same figure, in order to compare the results. Namely: Figure B.1 shows the corner plots of the two Modern Earth scenarios (MOD-CF and MODC); Figure B.2 shows the NOE Earth scenarios (NOE-CF and NOE-C); the GOE Earth scenarios (GOE-CF and GOE-C) are in Figure B.3; finally, the prebiotic scenarios (PRE-CF and PRE-C) are shown in Figure B.4.


The models are color-coded according to Table 1. Also, the results for the clear sky retrievals are shown using dashed contour lines, while the cloudy models are represented using solid lines. The table on the top right of each figure shows the expected values for each parameter, together with the estimates and the 1- σ uncertainty for the two scenarios.
