Accretion ProcessesDynamical Evolution of Planetary Systems
Two review articles by Alessandro Morbidelli, one of the big names in planetary science, particularly dynamical studies. Required reading for anyone creating their own worldbuilding system.Habitability from Tidally-Induced Tectonics
"The stability of Earth's climate on geological timescales is enabled by the carbon-silicate cycle that acts as a negative feedback mechanism stabilizing surface temperatures via the intake and outgas of atmospheric carbon. On Earth, this thermostat is enabled by plate tectonics that sequesters outgassed CO2 back into the mantle via weathering and subduction at convergent margins. Here we propose a separate tectonic mechanism -- vertical recycling -- that can serve as the vehicle for CO2 outgassing and sequestration over long timescales. The mechanism requires continuous tidal heating, which makes it particularly relevant to planets in the habitable zone of M stars."
The methods used are based in part on observations of Io, but there doesn't appear to be an consideration of large moons in the habitable zone.
