Fig. 10


Reflection phase curves computed for the synchronous case with an Earth-like atmosphere for 4 spectral bands falling into the I, J, H, K, and L windows. Shadowed areas indicate the 1-sigma variability due to meteorology (mainly changing cloudiness). The dashed curves are calculated with a constant surface albedo of 0.5, 0.1, and 0.01. Curves are dotted when the planet is inside an inner working angle of twice the diffraction limit of the E-ELT (2 × 1.22λ/D). Contrary to Fig. 8, these plots include a dependency of the planetary radius on the inclination of R ∝ (Mmin/sini)0.27. We note that 60° is the median value for a random distribution of inclinations.
