Temporal variations in the mass of a surface seawater, b mantle temperature, and c surface mobility varying with the total amount of water in the entire planetary system. For cases with 12 and 15 ocean masses, the mantle behaviors (water content and surface mobility) are the same due to the remaining surface seawater
