Some of the harmful gases which are rising in the atmosphere and are major cause of atmospheric pollution are (in no particular order):
See the Web Links for more information.
The thickness of the atmosphere is necessary because it absorbs all the harmful gases present in the air. These gases are mainly created by man, but some natural gases which get emitted due to natural hazards, are also taken in. The ozone layer is also present in the atmosphere itself.
The harmful gases emitted by vehicles are also greenhouse gases. SO2, NH3, NO2, CO2 are some examples.
it traps heat in the atmosphere but it also traps harmful gases from leaving the atmosphere'
what is being done to show that there are gases in the atmosphere
The moon has no atmosphere, so there are no gases in the Moon's atmosphere. Evidence for traces of some gases being emitted from the moon have been found, but those gases escape to space and do not form an atmosphere. They include sodium, potassium, radon-222, polonium-210, argon-40, helium-4, and a bit of water vapor.
During the process of outgassing, volcanic eruptions emitted the gases that founded the primitive atmosphere.
Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere help trap heat emitted from the Earth, otherwise the temperature of Earth's surface would be below zero.
Cows emit carbon gases but they also eat grass, and while grass grows it absorbs carbon gases from the atmosphere. So the gases emitted by cows represent a short-term carbon cycle which is 'sustainable'. This is far less harmful than the real danger, which is mining oil and gas and burning it, because that emits carbon into the atmosphere that was laid down millions of years ago - and too much of that is being emitted for nature to deal with in a short time.
ACID RAIN and RUST are harmful because it contains harmful gases like sulphuric acid etc... mainly sulphur gasesbecause of this harmful gases when they reach the atmosphere when it rains it forms acid rain as the harmful gases mix with the atmosphere .This acid rain will affect plants,animals humans and all living organism.The acid mainly occurs at industrial areas because of these harmful gases which are released by the industrial effluents.they are definitely harmful to the atmosphere.
Gas emitted from the engines consists of many harmful gases.Unburnt particles are released into the atmosphere which rise up and mix with other atmospheric gases and sometimes in process makes a free radical which contributes to ozone depletion.Emitted gases also contains carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide which is not good for our respiratory system.
What are the prinipal gases that are emitted into the atmosphere.
A greenhouse gas is a gas in the atmosphere that takes in and releases radiation. The greenhouse effect is more of a process in which radiation is emitted in different directions after being absorbed by greenhouse gases.
Greenhouse gases remain in the atmosphere for a long time. They cause the temperature to rise because the sun's harmful rays can get through the ozone layer of the atmosphere.
carbon monoxide, ozone, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and gases relesed from industrial processes
Sulphur Dioxide and Nitrogen Oxide Mainly :)
harmful gases concentrating the suns ray
yes, the amount of ash left does determine the amount of harmful gases that have gone into the atmosphere. (example if there is less ash that means that most of the material has burned up and released there gases, if there is a lot of ash that means there wasn't much gas being released because it just burnt up into ash.)
The burning of fossil fuels by nature releases harmful greenhouse gases.
The element Argon is a noble gas. It is one of the gases found in the atmosphere, and is not harmful.
people throw out their rubbish, it decomposes, leaving harmful gases in the atmosphere.
No. The "acid" is caused by pollution and other harmful gases in the atmosphere.
The harmful effect of burning fuel is that it pollutes the environment. This is done through the emission of toxic gases into the atmosphere.
Greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide are building up in the atmosphere and causing global warming.
gases emitted during volcano eruptions are basically oxides of shulphur,etc
