Greenhouse effect, a warming of Earth’s surface and troposphere (the lowest layer of the atmosphere) caused by the presence of water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, and certain other gases in the air.

Of those gases, known as greenhouse gases, water vapor has the largest effect. The Greenhouse Effect book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. Uncover the intriguing, and often mysterious, world of science in Le /5. @article{osti_, title = {Greenhouse effect}, author = {Bolin, B.

and Doos, B.R.}, abstractNote = {The authors analyze the problems of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations in the Earth's atmosphere and the possible future climatic changes which may ensue.

They consider such issues as the quantity of CO2 likely to be released into the atmosphere as a result of fossil fuel. Greenhouse gases let the sun’s light shine onto the Earth’s surface, but they trap the heat that reflects back up into the atmosphere.

In this way, they act like the insulating glass walls of a greenhouse. The greenhouse effect keeps Earth’s climate comfortable. Without it, surface temperatures would be cooler by about 33 degrees Celsius. The greenhouse effect is a natural process that warms the Earth’s surface.

When the Sun’s energy reaches the Earth’s atmosphere, some of it is reflected back to space and the rest is absorbed and re-radiated by greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases include water vapour, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone and some artificial chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).

By understanding how the greenhouse effect works and identifying what pollutants are adding to the problem, we can help prevent the devastating effects of global warming. The Amazon Book Review Author interviews, book reviews, editors' picks, and more.
