Radiation is the transfer of energy as
what?
8
Electromagnetic Waves
9
Thermal conduction is the transfer of
energy as what?
10
Heat through a material
11
The process by which gases in the
atmosphere absorb thermal energy
and radiate it back to Earth is called
what?
12
Greenhouse effect
13
When the amount of energy received
from the sun and the amount of
energy returned to space are about
equal, it is called what?
14
Radiation balance
15
One reason for global warming may
be what?
16
Increasing greenhouse gases.
17
What is a major source of humancaused air pollution?
18
Vehicle exhaust
19
What happens to most solar energy
that reaches Earth’s atmosphere?
20
It is absorbed by Earth’s surface
21
What causes wind?
22
Differences in air pressure.
23
What causes differences in air
pressure around the Earth?
24
Warm air rising at the equator and
cold air sinking at the poles.
25
In the Northern Hemisphere, winds
traveling north appear to curve to the
east because of what?
26
The Coriolis Effect
27
Global winds that blow from west to
east are called what?
28
Westerlies
29
Narrow belts of wind that can reach
400 km/h are called what?
30
Jet Streams
31
Local winds are produced by what?
32
Local geographic features
33
Convection is the transfer of energy
by what?
34
The circulation of liquid or gas.
35
Global warming may be caused by
what?
36
Increasing greenhouse gases
37
Wind occurs because of differences
in what?
38
Air pressure
39
Why does warm air rise and cold air
sink?
40
Because warm air is less dense than
cold air
41

temperature due to increased
greenhouse gases.
