: A First Course in General Relativity.McGraw-Hill, New York, 1995. The layer is transparent to solar radiation, and absorbs a fraction f of terrestrial radiation because of the presence of greenhouse gases.
There is presently much concern that anthropogenic i ncreases in greenhouse gases could be inducing rapid surface warming of the Earth. 31 Figure 7-18 Effect of incident angle on the transmission of radiation through a slab Further reading: Goody, R.
This seems a bit chilly if TE is viewed as representing the surface temperature of the Earth. From consideration of Figure 7-2 alone, it would be hard to view the warming over the past 100 years as anything more than a natural fluctuation! The efficiency of absorption of radiation by the atmosphere is plotted in as a function of wavelength. : Introduction to Special Theory of Relativity.
14 Replacing into gives 7. If X is a greenhouse gas, then adding Dm will decrease the outgoing terrestrial flux at the top of the atmosphere by an amount DF; DF is the radiative forcing caused by increasing the mass of X by Dm. Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change, Climate Change 1994, Cambridge University Press, 1995. Extending the record back to 150,000 yearsbottom panel reveals the succession of glacial and interglacial climates driven by periodic fluctuations in the orbit and inclination of the Earth relative to the Sun.
Some scientists argue that an increase in water vapor would in fact make clouds more likely to precipitate and therefore decrease cloud cover. Examination of the geometry of the molecule can tell us whether a transition between two states changes p. Figure 7-13 Radiation fluxes emitted to space at three different wavelengths and for the temperature profile in the left panel. 12 A separate energy balance equation applies to the atmospheric layer: 7.
Starting from this radiative equilibrium situation, we now perturb the equilibrium Step 2 by adding Dm of species X, keeping everything else constant including temperature.
For higher temperatures up to 10 6 K the main opacity source is bound-bound and bound-free absorption by atoms.
This result is not inconsistent with the data in ; better comparison would require a wavelength-dependent calculation.
