Greenhouse Gases

  1. 1. By Jesse Diaz<br />Global Warming an Inconvenient Truth?<br />
  2. 2. Theme<br />Is global warming due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentration?<br />
  3. 3. Problem<br />Human activities contribute to global warming by enhancing Earth&apos;s natural greenhouse effect. <br />Natural processes could have caused global warming <br />Solar variation<br />
  4. 4. Objective<br />Identify if the increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentration has actually made a measurable difference in the temperature. <br />Research if natural processes could have caused global warming. <br />
  5. 5. Greenhouse gases<br />Gases in an atmosphere that absorb and emit radiation within the thermal infrared range.<br />Common greenhouse gases in the Earth&apos;s atmosphere:<br />water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone.<br />
  6. 6. Greenhouse effect<br />
  7. 7. Hypothesis<br />Fluctuations in the solar cycle have increased the Earth&apos;s global temperature.<br />
  8. 8. Methodology<br />Obtaining Data<br />Satellite temperature measurements.<br />Radiance energy wave length.<br />Measurement of greenhouse gases emissions.<br />Measurements from Antarctic ice cores <br />Industrial and anthropogenic emissions<br />Solar irradiance measurement and calculations<br />Annual data analysis<br />
  9. 9. Long-term goals<br />The highest measurable cause of the temperature change.<br />Depending on the result, figure out a solution if necessary.<br />
