A group with NASA's Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS) is retooling their 3-D climate model to explore the diversity of planets around other stars.  I'll report on my opportunity to join this group at the NASA Goddard Institute of Space Science in Manhattan, discuss the physics involved with 3-D climate models, and report on some new research on the atmospheres of hydrogen-dominated super earths.  I'll also talk about how this work impacts the detectability of such planets with the next generation optical and infrared space telescopes.
