1 Global Warming: CH 4 vs CO 2 A presentation by Elijah Adamos Joseph Lara

2 Global warming: -increase in global average surface temperature… What is a more potent greenhouse gas? Methane? Caron dioxide?

3 Methane CH 4 = 1.866ppm = ppm yearly increase ( ) = molecule traps heat 20 times more effectively than CO 2 = radiative forcing 0.48 W/m 2 Carbon Dioxide CO 2 = 386.3ppm = ppm yearly increase ( ) = radiative forcing 1.66 W/m 2

4 Surface Air Temperature Methane Standard deviation: 1.186

5 Surface Air Temperature Carbon Dioxide Standard deviation:

6 Net Heating Methane Standard deviation: 1.292

7 Carbon dioxide Standard deviation: 2.498

8 Conclusion According to the models: 1.Methane causes greater surface air temperature changes. 2.Carbon Dioxide causes greater heating.

9 Methane increase from Arctic melting? No.
