Simple model of the greenhouse effect
Simple Model of the greenhouse effect

  • Includes atmosphere layer.

  • Atmosphere layer passes all solar radiation.

  • Atmosphere layer absorbs all IR from Earth.

  • Atmosphere layer radiates in the IR up to space and down to Earth surface.

  • Surface absorbs solar radiation and IR from atmosphere.

Tatm = 257 K Tearth = 303 K = 86° F



What if the atmosphere transmits some of earth s radiation
What if the atmosphere transmits some of Earth’s radiation?

Tearth = 288 K = 15 C = 59 F


Lapse Rate radiation?

The lapse rate is the rate at which temperature drops with altitude.

This rate is about 6 K / km or 3.6 F / 1000 ft.

So, if you climbed 4000 feet in the White Mountains, you would experience a 14 F drop in temperature.
