Neutral temperature structures for our simulations with different base mixing ratios of CO2 (upper-panel) and the total atmospheric heating rates due to the various heating processes as a function of CO2 mixing ratio (lower-panel). In the upper panel, the lines (which stop at the exobase) are simulations where the base CO2 density is 0.01, 0.1, 1, 10, 100, and 1000 times the value for the current Earth, which has a mixing ratio at 65 km of 4 × 10−4.
