Habitable Zones & Global Climate: November 2017


Is there life beyond Earth in the cosmos? Astronomers looking for signs have found that our Milky Way galaxy teems with exoplanets, some with conditions that could be right for extraterrestrial life.

Stratosphere circulation is important to interpret abundances of photo-chemically produced compounds like ozone that we aim to observe to assess habitability of exoplanets.

It has been established theoretically that atmospheric thermal tides on rocky planets can lead to significant modifications of rotational evolution, both close to synchronous rotation and at faster rotations if certain resonant conditions are met.

Understanding the impact of active M-dwarf stars on the atmospheric equilibrium and surface conditions of a habitable zone Earth-like planet is key to assessing M dwarf planet habitability.

Earth's climate, mantle, and core interact over geologic timescales.

A New Physical Model Explains The Origin Of Earth's Water.

Earth's atmosphere has evolved as volatile species cycle between the atmosphere, ocean, biomass and the solid Earth.
