P007:
Climatic Evolution of Venus and Venus-like Exoplanets





Session ID#: 23187

Session Description:
Although Venus today is hostile and uninhabitable, recent studies
have shown that its climate evolution is complex and could
permit early habitable conditions. For example, recent 3-D modeling    
studies have showed that Venus may have been habitable for a large    
fraction of our solar system’s history (e.g. Yang et al. 2014, Way    
et al. 2016). Also, it has been suggested that alternate modes of    
plate tectonics could aid volatile cycling on timescales congruent    
with stable climates on Venus-like worlds (e.g. Lenardic et al.    
2016). Advances in understanding the climates of Venus-like planets    
are important not only to understanding the evolution of our nearest    
planetary neighbor, but also to understanding Venus-like exoplanets,    
which may represent a cosmically ubiquitous type of world (Kane et    
al 2014). This session hopes to explore recent advances in    
understanding the evolution of the Venusian climate to provide a     
more complete view of Venus and Venus-like exoplanets.
