Abstract

Transmission spectra probe the atmospheres of transiting exoplanets, but these observations are also subject to signals introduced by magnetic active regions on host stars. We outline scientific opportunities in the next decade for providing useful constraints on stellar photospheres for the purposes of exoplanet transmission spectroscopy.
