Support is provided by the HOAPS group at MPI-M / UHH and thus any request regarding these parameters should be sent to info@hoaps.org. Estimates of the individual contribution of particular gases to the greenhouse effect – their Global Warming Potential (GWP), are broadly agreed (relative to carbon dioxide = 1). The ozone layer present in the stratosphere plays a essential role in absorbing UV radiations of the sun. If we also burn the tar sands and tar shale, I believe the Venus syndrome is a dead certainty."

So the best we can hope for is a consensus." Please select the appropriate application below. A wide array of archaeological, cultural, historical, and geologic evidence points to viable explanations tied to anthropogenic changes resulting from early agriculture in Eurasia, including the start of forest clearance by 8,000 years ago (beginning in Europe, China, and India to clear room for croplands and pastures) and of rice irrigation by 5,000 years ago (mainly in Southeast Asia).

The transition from an ice age to an ice-free planet 300 million years ago was highly unstable, marked by dips and rises in carbon dioxide, extreme swings in climate and drastic effects on tropical vegetation. "This is the best documented record we have of what happens to the climate system during long-term global warming following an ice age," said Isabel Montañez, professor of geology at the University of California, Davis, and lead author on the paper.

Timescales studied range from hours to millennia. However there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring. The greenhouse effect occurs naturally, providing a habitable climate. The Department seeks a candidate with strong teaching skills who will build and maintain an active research program with undergraduate students. In some regions such as the North Atlantic near Greenland, cooled high-salinity surface waters can become dense enough to sink to great depths.

In fact, atmospheric gases are often divided up into the major, constant components and the highly variable components, as shown in Table 1 and Table 2. The difference is greater considering developing countries' average 25% efficiency. Deforestation and extensive animal and crop farming are the aforesaid changes in land use that contribute to climate change.

From The World’s Biggest Gamble by Johan Rockstöm et al. ( here ) The scale of the decarbonisation challenge to meet the Paris Agreement is underplayed in the public arena. Key Concepts: Dissolved oxygen, turbidity, parts of a river (rapids, run, riffle, pool), types of aquatic organisms (plankton, nekton, benthos) Teachable Moments: The episode begins by showing a part of a river near its source; where the water is very cold and moving very quickly.
