Changes to the retrieved abundances of H2O, CO2, and FeH when one of the other molecules is removed from the retrieval. In all three cases, the model without the molecule is not preferred to the full setup. Comparing the Bayesian evidence suggests the presence of H2O is preferred by 3.11σ while there is a 2.35σ preference for the inclusion of CO2 and a 2.12σ preference for FeH. All these retrievals were conducted with an isothermal temperature–pressure profile.
