What do you understand by atmospheric stability How does the solar energy affect atmospheric stability and the visibility of the atmosphere?
QAMAR ABBAS ENVIRONMENTALIST GILGIT ASTORE Actually temperature decreases with altitude called as lapse rate, greater the lapse rate of atmosphere the more it will be unstabl…e. Atmospheric stability is the resistance of atmosphere against the increasing lapse rate therefore we can say that colder the temperature at altitude the more unstable will be the atmosphere similarly the low lapse rate determines that the atmospheric stability. The environmental lapse rate is 9.8 C/Km. Solar radiation helps the atmosphere to remain stable because it heats up the gases near the land which subsequently rises while decreasing lapse rate so that it is said atmosphere in clear sunny day is more stable than cloudy one. The third portion of this question is related the visibility with the solar energy YES the solar energy increases the visibility of atmosphere by breaking the trapping of pollutants and dispersing them while increasing the shining of atmosphere as well.
Oxygen is the gas that human breaths in. 2. is not a mineral 3. its a gas/vapor
Absolutely not. The greenhouse effect is a naturally occurring absorption of heat, mostly by water vapor, that allows us to have some heat during hours of no sunlight. Without… this effect, we would be a very dead planet. While ozone is considered a greenhouse gas, it's contribution to the overall issue is far under 1% of the effect. In terms of man made gas, carbon dioxide is the real issue, making up 5% to 25% of the total warming.
Why does releasing large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere cause an environmental problem?
Because CO2 acts like a blanket around the Earth this contributes to the Earth becoming warmer
Temperature, pressure, and water availability. For example, if you decrease temperature, the air cannot hold as much water vapor, this is the main cause of dew in the morning.… If you add a large supply of water, like a lake, into a desert region the air can act like a sponge.
Earth's atmosphere is comprised of layers of gases that are retained by the earth's gravity. There are 5 main layers: exosphere - outermost layer stratosphere thermosphere mes…osphere troposphere - begins at earth's surface and extends to between 7 km of the earth's poles at the equator with some variation due to weather. There are layers within these layers: ozone - within the stratosphere ionosphere - ionized by solar radiation homosphere and heterosphere - determined by whether or not the gases are well mixed (not that there's anything wrong with that Planetary boundary layer - part of the troposphere nearest the earth's surface
The most obvious and indisputable cause in the last 150 years is the addition of carbon through fossil fuels and land cover changes by humans. Other causes are changes in the …carbon cycle, minor by comparison. This includes a global ability to uptake more carbon in forests, as well as the inability for the oceans to take anymore carbon.
it has almost doubled!
Burning fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal) which contain large proportions of carbon.
Which atmospheric condition will cause the greatest amount of evaporation from the surface of a lake?
Dry, Hot, Windy weather will cause the greatest amount. hope this helped :)
Carbon dioxide is totally transparent in the visible spectrum of light, but somewhat opaque at some infrared frequencies. Thus, it allows the sun's energy to pass freely throu…gh the atmosphere to the surface as visible light, but when this energy is re-radiated from the earth as infrared (heat) rays, some of them are absorbed by the atmospheric carbon dioxide, preventing them from escaping into space. When the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide increased, as is occurring now as a result of human activities (burning fossil fuels), it stops or absorbs more of the infrared radiation at these frequencies, making the air and the earth warmer. Thus we have global warming.
it could block out the sun and cause the earth to cool
The human activities of deforestation and the burning of fossil fuels have caused the amount of carbon dioxide to increase in the atmosphere. Cutting down trees means that few…er are available to remove carbon dioxide (photosynthesis). Burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) releases extra carbon dioxide that has been hidden away for millions of years.
Global Warming. Water Vapour is considered a greenhouse gas.
The present levels of carbon dioxide dioxide in the atmosphere are causing global warming and climate change.
Plants produce most of the oxygen. They use carbon dioxide made by animals like us to convert it into carbohydrates, water and oxygen.
