Silicate weathering and the habitability of temperate, rocky planets

Abstract:

Through the climate-dependence of silicate weathering, the carbonate-silicate cycle is thought to provide a powerful negative feedback on atmospheric CO2 that has maintained clement surface conditions on Earth almost continuously for 4 billion years in the face of profound environmental change. The fundamental role played by silicate weathering in sustaining long-term habitability on Earth has led to the hypothesis that sufficiently “Earth-like” exoplanets may have their climates regulated...
