Greenhouse Effect & Global Warming

Greenhouse effect: Process by which radiation from a planet's atmosphere warms the planet's surface to a temperature above what it would be without its atmosphere.

Global warming is the climate change observed at century-scale with rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system

Greenhouse Effect

  • Emission & radiation within infrared range

  • 1st disc. by Joseph Fourier in 1824

  • 1st experimented by John Tyndall in 1858

  • 1st reported quantitatively by Svante Arrhenius in 1896

Difference between Natural and Anthropogenic Sources

Global-Warming Potential (GWP)

  • Relative measure of heat being trapped by GHGs in atmosphere

  • Compares total heat trapped by certain mass of gas to total amount of heat trapped by a similar mass of CO2

Causes of Global Warming

  • Deforestation

  • Rise of GHG

  • Population explosion

  • Industrialization

  • Change in agricultural methods

  • Volcanic Activities

  • Sunspots

  • Wobbly Earth
