Heat Energy: Atmosphere and Ocean

The Water cycle in the Atmosphere

Technology used for the Atmosphere

Energy in the form of heat moves easily from warm objects to cold objects. The ocean is an example of this. The ocean absorbs heat energy from the Sun and retains and stores it. When rain falls, the ocean releases its heat energy from its warmer waters back into the atmosphere.

The atmosphere moves water all over the globe. Evaporation changes liquid water into vapor which goes up into the atmosphere. Colder temperature in the atmosphere puts all of the water vapor into clouds, and the water comes down to earth as rain, snow, or hail.

Scientists use lasers to study the lower part of the atmosphere. The laser that scientists use are called lidars. NASA scientists use these lasers to study the atmosphere in high depth. A lidar focases at clouds in the lower atmosphere to see structure in the atmosphere.

There are nine gases in our atmosphere; however, there are only two main gases. Those two gases are Nitrogen and Oxygen. The heavier gases, like oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, are at the bottom of the atmosphere, but the lighter gases, like krypton, methane, and hydrogen, are at the top of the amosphere. Because the lighter gases are at the top, the atmosphere is thinner, and because the heavier gases are near the bottom, the atmosphere is thicker.

The Atmosphere and Geosphere

The geosphere interacts with most of the spheres. The atmosphere is one example. Volcanoes are in the geosphere, so when they explode large particals of matter go into the atmosphere.

Works Cited

Solas: Research Study

Solas stands for Surface Ocean-Lower Atmosphere Study. This research study is to understand the biogeochemical-physical interactions and feedback between the ocean and atmosphere.

Field of Science

Atmospheric chemistry is one field of science used to study the atmosphere. Atmospheric chemistry is the study of composition of the atmosphere, what happens to the gases and particals in the air, and changes induced by natural processes.

Global Concern

Air pollution is a global concern. Air pollution creates carbon-dioxide which helps create the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is when there is a rising of a greenhouse gas (carbon-dioxide). This affects our breathing of oxygen.

Feedback Loop

The ozone has a feedback loop. The formation of ozone is impacted by these components of climate: temperature, humidity, winds, and the presence of other chemicals in the atmosphere. Ozone and the components of climate affect one another.
