Abstract: Our ultimate goal is to investigate possible Earth-like exoplanet scenarios and resulting spectra taking into account 3-D atmospheric dynamics and chemistry. As a first step we use the state-of-the-art 3-D general circulation model EMAC to study the influence of spectral flux distributions corresponding to central stars of different spectral type upon Earth-like exoplanets. We focus on those atmospheric responses related to surface habitability such as surface temperature, surface wind, and precipitation. Preliminary results, as well as a comparison with a 1-D radiative-convective model, will be presented.
