1 4 D I Review Of Atmosphere And Geochemical Cycles

  1. 1. Review of Atmosphere and Geochemical Cycles<br />
  2. 2. Air<br />Has mass and volume<br />
  3. 3. Composition<br />Nitrogen – inert<br />Oxygen – reactive<br />Others are CO2 and H2O<br />
  4. 4. Gravity, Density and Atmospheric Pressure<br />
  5. 5. Modes of Heat Transfer<br />Radiation-heat energy in transit as electromagnetic radiation<br />Convection-involves fluid currents that carry heat from one place to another<br />Conduction-energy is transferred from a high temperature region to low temperature region due to random molecular motion (diffusion)<br />
  6. 6. Radiant Energy<br />Electromagnetic energy that travels in transverse waves. Radiant energy includes visible light, x-rays, gamma rays and radio waves. Light is one type of radiant energy. Sunshine is radiant energy, which provides the fuel and warmth that make life on Earth possible.<br />
  7. 7. Greenhouse Effect<br />
  8. 8.
  9. 9. Know these terms?<br />Transpiration<br />Inception<br />infiltration<br />Know these terms?<br />Precipitation<br />Evaporation<br />seepage<br />Condensation<br />Water Cycle<br />
