Carbon dioxide at the outer edge of the habitable zone

Post by Lazarus on 20th November 2012, 4:11 pm

Atmospheric constraints for the CO2 partial pressure on terrestrial planets near the outer edge of the habitable zone

Various effects of stellar insolation, etc.

One potentially interesting consequence:
As has been shown above (Fig. 3), for planets orbiting within the HZ of K-G-F stars there is a region of liquid surface CO2 combined with surface temperatures above 273 K, i.e. liquid surface H2O. This means that it is possible to form H2O-CO2 oceans.
