687 wordsThe Principle Events in the Evolution of the Earth's Atmosphere The literal translation of the word atmosphere is "sphere of vapors." The Earth's atmosphere is a protective sphere of vapors, or air that surrounds the Earth and provides it with a layer of insulation from the harmful rays of the sun. It is a vital part of the Earth, and has changed dramatically since the beginning of time. The earth's atmosphere has gradually changed since the Earth's birth approximately 4. 6 million years ago. In...

Green House Effect Carbon Dioxide
1,108 wordsGLOBAL WARMING Dear grandpa, Do you aware that our grand children and great children may be the victim of global warming during the next century? In 1986, the Swedish chemist state Arrhenius first revealed the theory that carbon emissions from the burning of coal and other fossil fuels could generate a green house effect by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere leading to global warming. Electro magnetic energy emanating from the Sun is absorbed by the Earth, which radiates some of this energy o...

1,790 wordsKyoto Protocol According to the basic theory of microeconomics, mutually beneficial trades are possible with the presence of marginal abatement costs differences. In terms of the trades of pollution permits, the level of pollution remains the same as when it is regulated by law; but the amount spent on pollution control is lower. Thus, we say that the practice of tradable pollution permits increases efficiency. With the aim to protect the global commons of the earths atmosphere, the obligations ...

Burning Of Fossil Fuels Humans And Animals
668 wordsCarbon Dioxide is a colorless, odorless gas that occurs in small quantities in the earths atmosphere naturally. The earths ocean, soil, plants and animals release CO 2. The formula of Carbon Dioxide is CO 2. The CO 2 molecule contains 2 oxygen atoms that each share 2 electrons with a carbon atom to form 2 carbon oxygen double bonds. The atoms are arranged as so (OHT). This is called a linear molecule. Carbon dioxide is commonly found as a gas and is never a liquid. It sublimes to a solid known a...

Most of us have seen fires in natural vegetation, or their effects; stark, blackened vegetation or a smoke pall. Because fires such as these can have damaging economic and social effects, can spoil forestry timber, can burn down houses and farms, and can kill people and animals, there has been a lot written about wildfires. Added to this wide perception of the damage that can be caused ...

Burning Fossil Fuels Natural Greenhouse Effect
3,312 wordsThe Greenhouse Effect The greenhouse effect, as defined in the dictionary, is the effect produced as greenhouse gases allow incoming solar radiation to pass through the Earths atmosphere, but prevent most of the outgoing infrared radiation from the surface and lower atmosphere from escaping into outer space. Even though this process occurs naturally and has kept the Earths temperature about 60 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it would otherwise be, current life on Earth could not be sustained with...

2,227 wordsThe Greenhouse Effect Issue Statement While some people believe the earths climatic changes are due to the fact that the universe is getting older, others believe it is due to the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is a naturally occuring phenomenon that is responsible for trapping heat near the earths surface and keeping the planet warm. It is called the greenhouse effect because the way it works is similar to the way in which a green house functions. In a greenhouse sunlight passes throu...

Big Bang Theory Hydrogen Ions
3,468 wordsLuminosity is the amount of light that is radiated from a star. White light is the composition of all colors. In elements, the energy discharge can be displayed as light. Just by looking at the colors that are discharged, one may precisely identify the element. In understanding the universe, the Doppler effect is one of the most important tools. The Doppler effect is a shift in frequency due to a moving source. Skipping a rock on water would be an example of this effect. The circles would be off...

2,475 wordsPropagation as defined by Webster Dictionary as the phenomenon of radio frequency energy traveling through the earths atmosphere, as well as through the empty space above the atmosphere. Once radio-frequency energy has been emitted from an antenna it will travel away from the antenna, where it is generated from, at the speed of light. Once it is sent the wave exists and propagates independently of the system that produces it. This means that changes, which occur at the transmitter (antenna), wil...

Earths Atmosphere Boiling Point
469 wordsNeon was discovered in 1898 by British chemists Sir William Ramsay and Morris W. Travers as a component of the most volatile fraction of liquefied crude argon obtained from air. Upon applying an electric current to it, the chemists found that it had an orange glow, and they decided that it was not argon, but rather a new element altogether. Neon is not a very common element, but the places it is most abundant in are the earths atmosphere, and trapped within rocks in the earths crust. The place w...
