What heats earths atmosphere?

The sun heats the atmosphere. Solar radiation largely passes through the atmosphere and warms the surface of the earth. The earth then radiates heat up into the lower levels of the atmosphere where greenhouse gases warm. The warmed greenhouse gases then continue to radiate heat in all directions warming the atmosphere and again the earth's surface.


How is the atmosphere affected by conduction convection radiation?

The atmosphere is affected by convention because convection heats the lower atmosphere. Radiation transfers energy which other gases heat up. Conduction does not impact the atmosphere in these same ways.


What heats the lower atmosphere?

The lower atmosphere is heated by the ground, which is heated by sunlight.

Why is Earth's atmosphere mainly heated from the ground up?

Solar radiation mostly passes through the atmosphere without heating it, due to its wavelength. It does not pass through the ground, however, and it heats the ground. The ground emits radiation at a wavelength dependent on its temperature. This radiation happens to be in the thermal infrared part of the spectrum, or in other words, sensible heat. Therefore, the atmosphere is heated by the surface, whereupon the heat tends to rise and heat the lower atmosphere.


The lower atmosphere is directly warmed by?

By the emission of the terrestrial radiation. Terrestrial radiation is emitted in the infrared long-wavelength part of the spectrum. It is terrestrial radiation rather than solar radiation that directly warms the lower atmosphere.


Most of the energy that heats earth's atmosphere is?

Heat from the sun rising as infrared radiation from the surface of the earth.


What is most of the energy that heats earths atmosphere?

Heat from the sun rising as infrared radiation from the surface of the earth.


How does solar radiation leave earths atmosphere?

It is radiated by many of the gases in the lower atmosphere.


When heat from the sun comes through the atmosphere and heats earth is called what?

This type of heat transfer is called radiation.


Why does radiation heats up?

Radiation never heats up .... when it is absorbed by matter then the matter heats up.


What is the source of energy that heats earth's surface?

The sun is the source of energy that heats earth's surface. Radiation from the sun comes through the atmosphere, largely unhindered, and warms the surface of the earth.
