The Space mission DWARFS is designed to determine atmospheric composition and physical properties of rocky extrasolar planets in the habitable zone around M-Type stars. Most importantly, we want to research the atmospheric composition with a special emphasize on O3, H2O, CH, CH4, CO2, CH3Cl lines, as well as the evolution of the planetary systems. For some of the stars DWARFS will be able to detect in addition surface features, moons or further planets in the system. All this will be done with two spectrographs in the NIR/MIR and a photometer (r, i SDSS) in a 4m space telescope.
