Imaging Cool Giant Planets in Reflected Light: Science Investigations and Synergy with Habitable Planets
Photometric and spectroscopic observations of cool extrasolar giant planets are valuable both for understanding the origin and evolution of giant planets as a whole and for preparing for the interpretation of similar datasets from potentially habitable extrasolar terrestrial planets in the decades to follow.
