This video is an introductory lecture of the online E-course by Prof David Archer, a renowned Climate Scientist. Prof Archer introduces the concept of Green House effect and other anthropological activities through this video.
|An online reading to help students understand the energy balance of planet earth, Stefan-Boltzmann’s Law and solar energy flux received by planet Earth to calculate its surface temperature. This resource can be used to demonstrate the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere by calculating the surface temperature of a bare blackbody earth, a blackbody earth with a 1-layer atmosphere.|
|This model/simulator shows the greenhouse effect of the Earth’s atmosphere and planetary energy balance of incoming solar radiation and outgoing radiation from the planet. Students/learners are presented with a model Earth having two atmospheric layers and they of can manipulate “the absorptivity/emissivity of each atmospheric layer, the amount of convective heat flux transferred at each level, the intensity of solar radiation, and the albedo of the planet and determine the resulting temperature of the surface and each layer of the atmosphere as well as the magnitude of each heat transfer.”|
This model demonstrates the effect of greenhouse gases on outgoing energy flux and compares various greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and water vapor with respect to the absorption of infrared radiation.
This tool helps students to visualize the structure of the molecules of atmospheric gases and to understand the effect of electromagnetic radiation on these molecules. The activity will also introduce the topic of greenhouse gases and their role in climate.
This interactive visualization helps students to learn about the IR spectra of different greenhouse gases, observe the amount of IR radiation absorbed by greenhouse gases, and to understand the resulting influence on the Earth’s climate.
