The greenhouse effect
THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT
The temperature of earth has been relatively constant over time. This is possible because as the planet absorbs solar radiation, it also emits long-wave radiation into space. Despite this radiative equilibrium, some long-wave radiation remains trapped beneath the atmosphere of the earth and warms the surface of the earth. This phenomenon is called the “Greenhouse Effect”. Earth’s Greenhouse Effect greatly affects the climate.
This video describe how carbon dioxide(CO2) and water vapor cause the earth’s Greenhouse Effect. Also it shows how the Greenhouse Effect maintains the surface temperature of earth …
