What is most of the energy that heats earths atmosphere?
Asked in Chemistry
What are eight characteristics on which the amount of energy that is absorbed by earths surface depends?
Asked in Astronomy, Global Warming, The Moon
What part of the earth receives the most solar heat and why?
Asked in Astronomy, Physics, Earth Sciences
What type is most of the energy that heats earth's atmosphere?
Heat radiation from the Earths core. This heat is rising towards the atmosphere, and bounced back towards the Earths surface, in whats called the Greenhouse Effect. Next to the Earths hot core, the energy that heats Earths atmosphere is heat radiation from the sun. This heat is also being bounced as a part of the Greenhouse Effect.

What is infrared radiation?
Infrared radiation is when earths surface radiates some of earths surface back into the atmosphere infrared radiation is a type of electromagnetic radiation, which involves waves rather than particles. This means that unlike conduction and convection radiation can even pass through the vacuum of space. infrared radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation which is emitted in the form of heat. infrared radiation is invisible
