Sudden stratospheric warming does lead to cooling on the earth's surface. This occurs due the reversal of high altitude winds that causes them to flow westward instead of …eastward. This results in a reduction of the Earth's surface temperature.
The gradual warming of earths surface is called global warming.
the green house effect
The differing air temperatures cause the winds.
The atmosphere helps keep earth's surface warm, but does not generate heat itself. The earth is warmed primarily by solar radiation (heat from the sun), and to a lesser extent… by the slow decay of long lived heavy isotopes within earth's mantle and core.
Through conduction: the transfer of energy from matter touching another matter.
Sunlight. The warmth rises into the atmosphere where some is trapped by greenhouse gases. These warm gases then warm the earth's surface again.
carbon dioxide and water vapor
Greenhouse gases largely carbon dioxide, water vapour, methane, nitrous oxide, HFC.
Because of the sun... Seriously it's not hard.
absorbing heat emitted by earth.
The sun's rays come through the atmosphere and warm the surface ofthe land. Infrared heat rises from the land into the loweratmosphere where much of if is trapped by greenhous…e gases likecarbon dioxide (CO2). This heat then spreads outwards, anddownwards, keeping the air warm.
