  5. 5. • Sunlight enters the Earth's atmosphere, passing through the blanket of greenhouse gases. As it reaches the Earth's surface, land, water, and biosphere absorb the sunlight’s energy. Once absorbed, this energy is sent back into the atmosphere. Some of the energy passes back into space, but much of it remains trapped in the atmosphere by the greenhouse gases, causing our world to heat up.
  6. 6. • The greenhouse effect is the rise in temperature that the Earth experiences because certain gases in the atmosphere (water vapour, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane, for example) trap energy from the sun. • The glass panels of the greenhouse let in light but keep heat from escaping • if the greenhouse effect becomes stronger, it could make the Earth warmer than usual. Even a little extra warming may cause problems for humans, plants, and animals.

Nowadays ice keep on melting at the Arctic that caused the rising of sea level. These three pictures show the effect of ice melting throughout the year .
  9. 9. EMPOWER Materials: 1 Jar or other see-through container Data logger with heat sensor Sunlamp or access to a sunny area to perform the experiment Instructions • 1) Place the both heat sensor in the sunlight for a few minutes to let them get warm. • 2) Record the initial readings of the sensor in a table. • 3) Place 1 of the sensor under the jar. The other sensor is put exposed directly to the sunlight which act as control. • 4) After 33 minutes, stop the data logger and get the results. • 5) Tabulate the result in table and graph form.

  12. 12. DISCUSSION • What can you see about the pattern of both graph ? Interpret the data given. • Compare the changes of temperature from the initial reading to the last reading between both location. • What can you conclude about the purpose of this experiment? How they relate to each other? • Do the environment affect the temperature?
  13. 13. ENHANCE Over 1 million fish and thousands of alligators, turtles, dolphins and other river wildlife are floating dead in numerous Bolivian rivers in the three eastern/southern departments of Santa Cruz, Beni and Tarija. The extreme cold front that hit Bolivia in mid-July caused water temperatures to dip below the minimum temperatures river life can tolerate. As a consequence, rivers, lakes, lagoons and fisheries are brimming with decomposing fish and other creatures.
  14. 14. Explanation • Most scientists believe greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide that is released mainly from vehicles and utility smokestacks, cause global warming by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere. Many believe global warming can lead to catastrophic consequences, including raising sea levels and strengthening weather events such as hurricanes.
  15. 15. • One Arctic variation, known as Arctic Oscillation, an atmospheric circulation pattern that can push sea ice out of the area, had become less of an influence in the region since the mid-1990s, the report said. • Inuit hunters, threatened by the melting of Arctic ice, plan to file a petition in December accusing the United States of violating their human rights by fuelling global warming. The Bush Administration has opted out of the Kyoto Protocol to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. • The Inuit number about 155,000 in Canada, Alaska, Greenland and Russia. • Scientists say the Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the globe because water or bare earth, once uncovered, soaks up more heat than ice and snow. That process means melting can spur even warmer temperatures and more melting.

  17. 17. Unique features 1) Data logger can immediately interpret data during the experiment. It is a real time operation. Student can immediately see the changes occur during the time. 2) Student can manage to see the small changes of temperature up to 0.01 degree celcius. On the same time student would be able to record the results in every 50 second. So, it is more accurate than using thermometer.
  18. 18. 3) This experiment require two temperature sensor that link directly to the same data logger. We can see the differences of temperature in two different location at the same time.
