Transcript

  • 1. Global warming and it's impact
  • 2. Created by,
    M.Kohila,M.Phil.(Tam),B.A(Eng),
    Secondary grade teacher,
    S.M.R.V.H.S.S.,
    Vadasery,
    Nagercoil,
    Kanyakumary district,

  • 3. Teaching objectives
    • To understand about the green house gases.
    • 4. To undertstand about the infrared radiations.
    • 5. To understand about the air pollution.
    • 6. To understand about the green house effect.
    • 7. To understand about the global warming.
    • 8. To understand about the effects of global warming.
  • Green house
    • Greenhouses are used to grow plants, especially in the winter.
    • 9. Greenhouses work by trapping heat from the sun
    • 10. The glass panels of the greenhouse let in light but keep heat from escaping.
    • 11. This causes the greenhouse to heat up.
  • Green house gases
    Any gas that absorbs infra-red radiation in the atmosphere.
    water vapour
    Nitrous oxide (N2O)
    C
    O
    O
    C
    O
    O
    Halogenated Chlorofluoro carbons (HCFCs)
    Carbon dioxide (CO2)
    methane (CH4)
    Ozone (O3)
    Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
  • 12. Green house effect
    Carbondioxide present in the atmosphere absorbs infrared radiations reflected from the surface of the earth and heats up the atmosphere.
    This heating up of atmosphere by carbondioxide in the air is called green house effect.
  • 13. Sources of green house gases
  • 14. Smoke comes out from the factories
  • 15. Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere behave much like the glass panes in a greenhouse.
  • 16. Importance of the greenhouse effect
    Without the greenhouse effect, the Earth would not be warm enough for humans to live.
    But if the greenhouse effect becomes stronger, it could make the Earth warmer than usual.
  • 17. Global warming
    Because of Green house effect the average temperature of the earth increases and this is known as Global warming
  • 18. Sunlight enters the Earth's atmosphere, passing through the blanket of greenhouse gases.
  • 19. Sunlight’s energy emains trapped in the atmosphere
  • 20. Impacts of global warming
  • 21. Impacts of global warming
    • Droughts
    • 22. Floods
    • 23. Level Rising temperatures of oceans and the sea
    • 24. Tornadoes
    • 25. Hurricanes
    • 26. The melting of mountain glaciers
    • 27. The reduction of snow cover
    • 28. Dying coral reefs
    • 29. Coastal erosion
    • 30. Loss of coastal ecosystems
    • 31. Extra warming may cause problems for humans, plants, and animals.
  • Flood
  • 32. Drought
  • 33. Level Rising of oceans and the sea
    Hurricanes
  • 34. Coastal erosion
    In 1999
    Dying coral reefs
    In 2004
