Pt 1) List these six greenhouse gases in order from most to least abundant in the atmosphere.
CO2, CH4, CFCs, Ozone, O2, H2O
Pt 2) On a per molecule basis, which of these gases is the most effective?
O2, CO2, CH4, Ozone, CFCs
You forgot to put H2O, but if I didn't list that it would be correct :mrgreen:
Your turn!

Foss: 3/1/8/4/1
Green Gen: 2/1/4/1/7

the dipstick is an intricate device used to measure the amount of rain in a rain gauge. it can also be used as a derogatory term for your meteorology partners

Your turn!
Name at least 5 ways to study past climate and what you look for in each one.
:D

Hello meteorology891. It's punkprincess. -.-
1) Tree Rings
- Thick rings are a sign of favorable climate, abundant rainfall, and good growing conditions. 
- Thin rings indicate poor growing conditions and lack of rain, as well as natural disasters such as droughts, floods, and volcanoes.

2) Coral Reefs
- Every time a piece of coral skeleton is created, it leaves a record of the conditions under which it was created. 
- When water temperatures change, the chemical makeup also changes. 
- Therefore, coral from different seasons differs.
- The also have growth rings similar to tree rings.

3) Ice
- Gigantic glaciers down south or up north in Antarctica and in the Arctic. 
- These ice formations developed over hundreds of thousands of years as layers of snow pressed together forming ice. 
- The bubbles formed when the sculptures compressed create lines just like tree rings.
- Scientists examine the layers to determine the age of the ice and the approximate climate during a given period.

4) Space
- Earth's climate can be monitored through the use of satellites. 
- NASA satellites have been observing Earth's atmosphere, oceans, land, snow, and ice from high in space. 
- The data they provide can help scientists develop a better understanding of how these different elements interact with each other to influence climate and weather.

5) Ocean
- Studying samples of varves—layers of silt and clay that are deposited year after year on the bottoms of glacial lakes and ponds can help figure out climate. 
- Varves provide natural climate records going back several thousand years. 
- They consist of two layers.
          ~ a thick, light-colored layer of silt and fine sand that forms in the spring and summer
          ~ a thinner, dark-colored layer of clay that forms in the fall and winter and sinks to the bottom.
It's been scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer... ;)
Scientists say that the world is made of protons, neutrons and electrons. They forgot to mention morons. :lol:

Correct! Your Turn :shock:
I have a couple. Name as many reasons as you can as to why climate change is occurring. How much CO2 do we release into the atmosphere? What is the main reason for this? What are the main things responsible for fossil fuel depletion and climate pollution?
