Textbook Problem

What effects can changes in the amounts of CO2 and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have on global temperatures? How can past changes in amounts of CO2 be determined?

To determine

The effects that can change the amounts of CO2 and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have on global temperatures. Also describe the way in which past changes on the amounts of CO2 can be determined.

Explanation

The composition of gases in the atmosphere is another characteristic that can be closely correlated with the average global temperature. An increase in the amount greenhouse gases in atmosphere will result in the trapping of heat in the lower atmosphere and some may return back to the surface by the radiation of thermal infrared energy. An increase in the average global temperatures and CO
