The habitable zone (HZ) around a star is typically defined as the region where a rocky planet can maintain liquid water on its surface. That definition is appropriate, because this allows for the possibility that carbon-based, photosynthetic life...

Understanding whether M dwarf stars may host habitable planets with Earth-like atmospheres and biospheres is a major goal in exoplanet research. If such planets exist, the question remains as to whether they could be identified via spectral signat...

Planets in the habitable zone of lower-mass stars are often assumed to be in a state of tidally synchronized rotation, which would considerably affect their putative habitability. Although thermal tides cause Venus to rotate retrogradely, simple s...

Tian, Feng, 2009: Thermal escape from super Earth atmospheres in the habitable zones of M stars. A fundamental question for exoplanet habitability is the long-term stability of the planet's atmosphere. We numerically solve a one-dimensional multi-component hydrodynamic thermosphere/ionosphere model to examine the thermal and chemical res...

Rushby, A.J.; Claire, M.W.; Osborn, H.; Watson, A.J., 2014: Habitable zone lifetimes of exoplanets around main sequence stars. The potential habitability of newly discovered exoplanets is initially assessed by determining whether their orbits fall within the circumstellar habitable zone of their star. However, the habitable zone (HZ) is not static in time or space, and it...

Joshi, M.M.; Haberle, R.M., 2012: Suppression of the water ice and snow albedo feedback on planets orbiting red dwarf stars and the subsequent widening of the habitable zone. M stars comprise 80% of main sequence stars, so their planetary systems provide the best chance for finding habitable planets, that is, those with surface liquid water. We have modeled the broadband albedo or reflectivity of water ice and snow for...

Zone (HZ, often described in terms of planet semi-majoraxis and orbital eccentricity), we can ask, "How does the HZ for an Earth-likeexomoon differ from the HZ for an Earth-like exoplanet?"For the first time, we use 1D latitudinal energy...

We present a new conceptual Earth system model to investigate the long-term co-evolution of geosphere and biosphere from the geological past upto 1.5 billion years into the planet's future. The model is based on the global carbon cycle as med...

The quest for Earth-like planets is a major focus of current exoplanet research. Although planets that are Earth-sized and smaller have been detected, these planets reside in orbits that are too close to their host star to allow liquid water on th...

As a contribution to the study of the habitability of extrasolar planets, weimplemented a 1-D Energy Balance Model (EBM), the simplest seasonal model ofplanetary climate, with new prescriptions for most physical quantities.
