The habitability of a planet is affected by the location of its land

the experts have identified substantial differences in surface temperature, sea-ice, and water vapor 

Many planets are tidally locked to their stars so that one side of the planet is always facing away 

This phenomenon creates permanent day- and nightsides on such planets, 

 the climate must be at least to a certain extent regulated across its surface. 

 the planet’s atmosphere and oceans need to redistribute part of the energy received from the star to the planet’s nightside.

The scientists have applied a three-dimensional climate model (ExoPlaSim) to simulated Earth-like planets with two different dayside

“Our work demonstrates that the distribution of land on an Earth-like planet has a big impact on its climate,
