  • Solar Radiation and Insolation

  • InsolationThe portion of the suns output of electromagnetic radiation that is received by Earth at the outermost part of our atmosphere (INcoming SOLar radiATION)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insolation

  • OzoneA form of oxygen gas that absorbes nearly all ultraviolet radiation in Earths upper atmospherehttp://ipy.nasa.gov/multimedia/m000000/m000000/m000001/160657main_OZONE_large_web.png

  • Angle of IncidenceThe angle at which the insolation strikes Earths surfacehttp://content.answers.com/main/content/img/oxford/Oxford_Sports/0199210896.angle-of-incidence.1.jpg

  • TranspirationA process by which plants release water vapor into the atmosphere as part of their life functionshttp://www.fijiaquifer.com/images/Transpiration.jpg

  • Greenhouse GasesCarbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, and other gases in the atmospherehttp://www.umich.edu/~gs265/society/greenhouseeffectexplained.gif

  • Global WarmingAn increase in average Earth temperatureshttp://ruby.fgcu.edu/courses/twimberley/EnviroPhilo/GlobalWarming.jpg

  • Heat Budget and Climate Change

  • Heat BudgetThe result of the balance between the total amount of energy an object receives and the total energy it emits or loseshttp://www.geography.hunter.cuny.edu/~tbw/wc.notes/2.heating.earth.surface/images/earth.atm.heat.budget.jpg

  • Ice agesPeriods when glaciers advanced into the middle latitudes caused by shifts in heat balancehttp://www.cosmosmagazine.com/files/imagecache/news/files/news/20081113_ice_age.jpg

  • El NinoA warming event that occurs every 2 to 10 years in. The normally cold waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean, off western South America, are replaced with a vast area of warmer waters://www.junglephotos.com/galapagos/satimages/othersatimages/elnino.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.junglephotos.com/galapagos/satimages/othersatimages/elnino.shtml&usg=__8K2ayh1m1DZm9GQzR6ViDb5YD0w=&h=480&w=640&sz=30&hl=en&start=4&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=cv5vCcX6NoXviM:&tbnh=103&tbnw=137&prev=/images%3Fq%3Del%2Bnino%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26rlz%3D1T4GZAZ_enUS316US317%26um%3D1
