-Rocky shores =plants may be unable to grow usually, algae and small animals (?)
- Muddy or sandy (or mixed) = plants (grasses and rushes), earthworms, amphibians, snails, insects, small fish and microorganisms
Microorganisms = bacteria, protozoans, algae, fungi, etc.
-Greenhouse gases are those that can absorb and emit infrared radiation, but not radiation in or near the visible spectrum. In order, the most abundant greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere are:
-We focus on CO2 because it is the one most rapidly changing and most crucial to global warming
-Gas, Formula, Contribution (%)
Water vapor, H2O, 36 - 72 %
Carbon dioxide, CO2, 9 - 26 %
Methane, CH4, 4 - 9 %
Ozone, O3 3 - 7 %
-water most abundant but only last for days and is not directly contributing to global warming. Other gases can last for years.
