Details, alongside short names, of the key simulations used in this work.

Short name Heating/cooling Length (Earth days) Adjusted parameters Equation set

Std Prim TF 10 200 Rw = 0.20 “Primitive”
Std Full TF 13 300 “Full”
Std RT RT 1600 “Full”
Reduced pmax TF 15 400 pmax = 106 Pa, Rw = 0.20 “Full”
Deep ΔTeq → pole TF 10 800 p> 106Pa: τrad(p) = τrad(106Pa) “Full”
Teq = Teq + 1000.0sin2(φ)

Notes. A more extensive set of simulations were performed, but we only highlight those where results are directly used in this work. The heating/cooling scheme (temperature forced, TF, or radiative transfer, RT), total elapsed simulation time (rounded down to the nearest 100 days), variables or settings which are different from the standard models (see Table 1 for the basic parameters), and the sophistication of the dynamical equations is shown (see Mayne et al. 2014a, for definition). The time sampling in all cases was ten days, with an additional run outputting at 1 day performed only over the first 100 days for each simulation. p is the pressure, τrad the radiative timescale and Teq the equilibrium temperature.
