Three Greenhouse Gasses

Nowadays, scientists and other people interested in this topic have concluded that, because of the emissions of greenhouse gases, humanity unbalances the natural greenhouse effect of the planet. The solar energy as visible and infrared radiation is partly absorbed by the atmosphere (25%) and by the surface of the earth (45%), and partly reflected by the atmosphere (25%) and by the surface of the earth (5%). The energy absorbed by the surface of the Earth is then transferred back to the atmosphere as infrared radiation with higher wavelength and lower intensity due to the fact that the surface of Planet is much cooler than the surface of the Sun.

Certain gases in the atmosphere are transparent to the short-wave radiation that comes from the Sun, but opaque to the long wave radiation coming from the surface of the earth. This increases the kinetic energy of the gas molecules, which determines the increase in the atmosphere temperature, and, of course, in this way, causes the temperature at the surface of the earth to rise at the same time. Most of the absorption of infrared radiation occurs in the lower atmosphere – in the troposphere. This warming effect (33 ° C) is known as the natural greenhouse effect because the atmosphere acts as a window in a greenhouse, allowing the long-wave radiation to penetrate, while maintaining long-wave radiation within this space, for which the window is opaque. The natural greenhouse gases are: water vapors, nitrous oxide, ozone, carbon dioxide, and methane.

The main three greenhouse gases are: nitrous oxide, methane and water vapors.

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is one of the major three greenhouse gases, that lasts long, it is mostly emitted from biological sources that are found in soil and water and released in the upper atmosphere through photochemical reactions. Unfortunately, quantitative estimates of the contributions and losses on a global level are hard to compute.

Methane is the major component of natural gas and cow flatulence and one of the most important three greenhouse gases. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) acknowledges that it does not completely comprehend the methane cycle. IPCC states that methane release comes from natural sources, for example swamps and termites, and from sources created by man, such as cow farms and recycling stations.

The last and most important of the three greenhouse gases mentioned above is water vapors. As reported by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, water vapors account for 36 to 70 percent of the greenhouse effect. Examples of water vapors are: mist, haze, clouds and steam.
