Greenhouse gases

Features of Greenhouse Gases

At the head of the industrial revolution, the discovery of fossil fuels meant that humans found an inexhaustible treasure trove of resources that were born out of life that had been trapped inside the ground for countless centuries. The use of fossil fuels resulted in the emission of greenhouse gases (DiMento and Doughman). Greenhouse gas emissions have one very important gas that is implicated in the rapidly escalating climate change i.e. carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide was meant by nature t…


Definition of Greenhouse Gases

 Making global change understandable is a priority in the minds of the general public. What it means for us, our children and the future generation is what we should address now. Many centuries ago, humans have tries to use scientific means to change weather pattern, to get more rain or stop the rain or to decrease the heat or warm it up a little bit (DiMento, J.F., & Doughman, P., 2014). But, historically we have unintentionally change climate and still changing it today. This pape…


Removing Carbon Dioxide From the Atmosphere

‘’It refers as the process which is used to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere both by artificial and natural method and converted into solid and liquid form’’. As human activities have increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Carbon Sources and Carbon Sinks  Anthropogenic activities such as fossil fuels are releasing from stages of Earth, coal, natural gas and petroleum and added into the atmosphere. Plants and animals decomposition add carbon dioxi…


Greenhouse Experiment Agave

Deploying community filters (dispersal, abiotic and biotic interactions) all together— instead of solely focusing on the biotic interactions—will offer a better restoration framework to land managers (Hulvey & Aigner, 2014). In invaded habitats, long-term agave restoration requires an understanding of the complexity and variability of favorable growth conditions for agave growth and sustenance. This greenhouse experiment was designed to test the growth responses and interacti…


The Greenhouse Effect: Mythological Beast or Real Monster in Our Midst

The greenhouse effect results from dirt in the middle of the Earth's atmospheric infrared window. This dirt comes from many sources, such as atmospheric trace gases, naturally occurring particulate matter, microscopic space debris, evaporated water vapor, and our own contributions, Carbon Dioxide and CFC's! Carbon Dioxide occurs naturally, but we add several billion tons each year! It is a big sky, but even it is limited in it's holding capacity, especially in CFC's. CFC's, …


An Analysis of the Greenhouse Effect as a Natural Phenomenon

The greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that warms the earth and enables it to support life. Without it, the average temperature on earth would be around -18 degrees C, instead of the current +15 degrees C - a frozen wilderness. It works on the same principles as the ordinary glass garden greenhouse, where glass allows light to get in, but does not allow for the heat to get out. This makes for a much higher temperature inside the greenhouse. On a planetary scale, similar processes occu…


The Greenhouse Effect

The greenhouse effect, in environmental science, is a popular term forthe effect that certain variable constituents of the Earth's lower atmospherehave on surface temperatures. These gases--water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide(CO2), and methane (CH4)--keep ground temperatures at a global average of about15 degrees C (60 degrees F). Without them the average would be below thefreezing point of H20. The gases have this effect because as incoming solarradiation strikes the surface, the surface giv…


An Analysis of the Death of the Ozone By the Greenhouse Effect

The Death of the Ozone by the Greenhouse effect: Myths Busted In this article the heavily controversial proposed link between ozone depletion and the greenhouse effect will be discussed. There is no individual link between Ozone depletion and the Greenhouse Gas Effect; however there is the exception of Chlorofluorocarbons, a greenhouse gas that depletes the Ozone. The ozone acts as a shield covering the Earth in the stratosphere like an invisible globe, allowing some of the suns UV rays t…


United Nations on the Topic of Greenhouse Effect

In 1992 the United States and nations from around the world met at the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio and agreed to voluntarily reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2000. The Rio Treaty was not legally binding and, because reducing emissions would likely cause great economic damage, many nations will not meet the goal. Representatives from around the world met again in December of 1997 at a conference in Kyoto to sign a revised agreement. The Clinton Administration …


Research on Effects of Increasing Temperature on Carbon in the Soil

In Margaret Torn's research, the main focus is on the effect increases in temperature have on carbon in the soil. Recent increases in temperature have scientists and researchers like Torn wondering if it will have an impact on the amount carbon retained in soil. With anthropocentric activity accountable for vast quantities of carbon emissions, it is crucial to examine the increase in temperature with respect to carbon retention in soil. Based on my notes on the panelist presentation, I was …


Global Warming On The Causes Of The Greenhouse Effect

In order to talk about global warming, we must first learn what causes the greenhouse effect. A lot of the rays from the sun are absorbed by water vapor that is naturally in our atmosphere. Water vapor accounts for "80 percent of natural greenhouse warming. The remaining 20 percent is due to other gasses that are present in very small amounts1". Carbon dioxide is also a big absorber of the sun's heat rays. Global warming will not just make sea levels rise, it will also affect s…


Carbon Dioxide And Its Role In The Greenhouse Effect

Carbon dioxide is a gas comprising less than 0.04 % of the atmosphere.It is used by plants to make, directly or indirectly, all of the food that we eat.Increases in the concentration of carbon dioxide generally increase the growthrate of plants and decrease their water use. The concentration of carbondioxide in the atmosphere is increasing, mostly as a result of burning of coal, oil, gas and forests. Its concentration may double by the end of the nextcentury. Carbon dioxide also significantly i…


Greenhouse Effect and its Role in Global Warming

In environmental science the green house effect is a common term for the role water vapor; carbon dioxide and ozone play in keeping the earths surface warmer than it would normally be. The atmosphere is primarily transparent to infrared radiation from the sun, which is mostly absorbed by the earths surface. The earth being much cooler than the sun, remits radiation most strongly at infrared wavelengths. Water vapor, carbon dioxide and ozone then absorb much of this radiation and remit a large p…

Environmental Issue that Earth Facing Today

2018, going on 2019, a trending topic was conspiracy theories. Questions such as: is the Earth flat? Does the government have weather weapons? And most notably, does climate change actually exist? How our young generation can think of such things. Climate change, a change in climate patterns; an increase of CO2 in the air, has been suspected to be around since the early 19th century. Since then many have argued whether or not the phenomenon could be real. While many may (and will) argue; climat…


Danger of Increase Greenhouse Gases

“Climate heating greenhouse gases hit a new high, UN reports” is a news report published on The Guardian news website in November 2019. This news was written by Carrington Damian. The author of this news provides an analysis of climate change and the effects of the greenhouse. Clavero et al.

Impact and Causes of Greenhouse Effect

The greenhouse effect is named this as its the exchange of incoming as well as outgoing radiation that helps to warm the earth, this is similar to the same act and reason why we use greenhouses. A greenhouse is known for being successful in having the plants inside being able to be grown all year round, even if it\'s not the season for that plant, or it could be so cold outside, to cold for that plant to thrive. We know that a greenhouse is constructed of glass, having them made of sunlight…


The Realities and Consequences of Climate Change

Background What is climate change? How does it affect society and the environment? Are humans to blame, and if so, can we fix it? To understand the full impacts of climate change on the globe and the environment, one must first comprehend what “climate” means at its most basic understanding. Climate is defined as the composite or generally prevailing patterns of weather conditions of a region. As opposed to weather which measures the day-to-day state of the atmosphere, climate …


A Research on the Emission of Greenhouse Gas of Grasslands

Chinese researchers have found further evidence that plants emit significant quantities of methane - a potent greenhouse gas. But the latest findings also show that methane emissions depend not just on the species of plant, but the conditions in which they are growing. Frank Keppler, from the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg, Germany, first claimed in January 2006 that the world's plants, previously seen as a greenhouse gas sink thanks to their CO2 uptake, actually em…


A Discussion of Greenhouse Effect

By definition, the greenhouse effect is a term for the role the atmosphere plays in insulating and warming the earth's surface. In modern society, this is the term for something better known as global warming. The earths climate is predicted to change drastically in the next century due to human activity. As the population of the world increases, so does the anount of greenhouse gasses produced. These include mainly carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. Methane som the decom tural …


A Discussion on the Greenhouse Effect

The glass windows of a greenhouse let in sunlight. The sunlight warms up objects inside the greenhouse. These objects then give off heat. The glass of the greenhouse, however, does not let out the heat. If the greenhouse lacks ventilation, all the heat stays locked inside and the temperature rises. This greenhouse effect also causes the inside of an automobile to become hot if its windows remain closed on a sunny day. The Earth and its atmosphere are like a giant greenhouse. Like the glass w…

But, now the question arise how bushfire starts so, basically main components of fire are oxygen, fuel and heat. W…


Issue of the Greenhouse Effect

A common misconception held by most people is that the "greenhouse effect" is a phenomenon mainly caused by human CO2 production. This is a gross misunderstanding; actually, the greenhouse effect is a natural occurrence. Certain gases in the atmosphere trap infrared radiation, or heat, that would otherwise escape from the earth's atmosphere into outer space, this heat is a result of the greenhouse effect which is absolutely essential to the survival of every species on earth. T…
