Mean annual surface temperature for early Earth. Calculated at a relative solar constant S/S0 = 0.80, and as a function of cloud fraction and ocean fraction. The amount of warming from greenhouse gases in these calculations is equivalent to the warming at the maximum concentrations of atmospheric CO2 and CH4 described by Rosing et al. (2010).
