What gasses are responsible for the warming of the earth's surface?
Visible light from the Sun
absorbing heat emitted by earth.
The angle at which the sunlight strikes the Earth
The natural process of Erosion is the wearing down and moving of rocks and soil from one place to another. The natural agents of eroson are: Water, wind, and ice.
the green house effect
What two gasses have been added to Earth's atmosphere in large amounts and are believed to have increased global warming by absorbing infrared radiation?
methane and carbon dioxide
Sunlight. The warmth rises into the atmosphere where some is trapped by greenhouse gases. These warm gases then warm the earth's surface again.
The differing air temperatures cause the winds.
Weathering and erosion
No, greenhouse gases warm the air near the earth's surface by trapping heat from the warm earth that would otherwise escape into space.
The Earth's mantle is a plastic substance which undergoes convection due to the heat of the core. Warm material rises up from near the core to just under the crust. The heat t…hat it carried from the core is released into the crust, thus warming the surface. The cooled material then descends back to the core.
