The transfer of thermal energy by collisions between particles of matter Conduction
Electromagnetic waves that transfer thermal energy Radiation
Bounce back Reflect
Absorbed radiation is re-emitted as Infrared light
When warm air rises, energy is transferred to the atmosphere by Convection
Rising air is always accompanied by Sinking air
Air moving over a mountain range is called a Mountain wave
This type of air movement creates Lenticular clouds
Series of actions Process
Strength or weakness of circulating air motions Stability
Condition in the troposphere that involves a temperature increase with altitude Temperature inversion
The movements of air are strong Unstable
When movements of air are weak Stable
About 25% of radiation from the Sun is Clouds and other small particles (reflected atmosphere)
About 5% of radiation from the Sun is Is reflected by land and sea surface
About 50% of the Sun's rays Reaches and is absorbed by Earth's surface
About 20% of the radiation from the Sun is Gas and particles in the atmosphere
The atmospheric layer that is the farthest from Earth Exosphere
What does radiation balance mean The balance between the amount of incoming radiation from the Sun and the amount of outgoing radiation from the Earth
A thin layer of gases that surrounds Earth Atmosphere
The region within the mesosphere where ions are located ionsphere
The layer of the atmosphere that is directly above the stratosphere Mesosphere
The layer of the atmosphere that is directly above the troposphere Stratosphere
The layer of the atmosphere that is directly above the mesosphere Thermosphere
