Hot super-Earth, around a G-type star: minimum detectable abundances (mixing ratios) for a basic, deep and ultradeep retrieval. The bulk composition of the planetary atmosphere in this simulation is H2O. See Tessenyi et al. [93] for further details on the method and the impact of other main atmospheric components on the results.
