2.1 Energy Relationships and The Biosphere. Flow of Energy in the Biosphere. The biosphere is maintained by a constant flow of energy from the sun Net radiation budget is the difference between incoming and outgoing solar radiation. Energy Relationships and the Biosphere.
(a) Latitude(b) Characteristics of the biosphere
The amount received by a region (isolation) depends on:
high albedo =
soil, dark rocks, forests, dust
low albedo =
