The characteristic of the atmosphere for a region on Earth over a longer time period (seasons, years etc.)
This is where less solar radiation reaches the earth because of increased cloud and/or gas cover in the atmosphere
The process of gases being trapped inside earth's atmosphere and causing the earth to become warmer than it naturally would be.
Gases that are present in the greenhouse effect. Ex: Water vapor, CO2, CH4, and CFCs
Self-Enhancing in the warming effect; Makes it worse, this increase in air pollution leads to another increase and another =global warming
This effect deflects wind in a pattern creating 3 cells of air circulation in each hemisphere. Atmospheric circulation works with the tilt of the earth and what is going on with the latitudes and etc of the planet. It depends what area you are at as to what pressure level there will be. There is a total of six different zones of circulation.
This is above the troposhere and this is where atmospheric waming takes place with inceases in altitude.
A condition in which the upper air temperature increases rather than decreases
The coldest temperature, 0 Kelvin, that can be reached. It is the hypothetical temperature at which all molecular motion stops.
the amount of energy in a light or sound wave, which we perceive as brightness or loudness, as determined by the wave's amplitude
the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1g of a substance 1 degree Celsius
a change from one state (solid or liquid or gas) to another without a change in chemical composition
