EMAC - Exoplanet Modeling and Analysis Center

The Exoplanet Modeling and Analysis Center (EMAC) is a repository and integration platform for modeling and analysis resources focused on the study of exoplanet characteristics and environments. EMAC is a new web-based collaboration and software development project hosted at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and is a key project of the GSFC Sellers Exoplanet Environments Collaboration (SEEC). This project intends to bring together open-source modeling and analysis software to create a site where the exoplanet community, including astrobiologists, can access a wide range of useful exoplanet science resources.
