Which elements of weather can you pick out in the next slide? In 5 seconds or less….
Weather is simply the state of the atmosphere That means that the weather has everything to do with the atmosphere….and the atmosphere has everything to do with weather..
So to understand weather, we must understand the atmosphere
What is the atmosphere?
The atmosphere is the layer(s) of gases that surrounds the earth. It is like an invisible blanket that wraps around the planet
Another way to describe the atmosphere is like
AN OCEAN OF AIR
If the atmosphere is like an ocean of air. Where are we in that ocean? At the bottom…
Some gases in the atmosphere are: Nitrogen Oxygen Argon Carbon Dioxide
What do these gases make?… AIR
These gases are floating around in the atmosphere around us…
What keeps those molecules in the atmosphere? Why dont they fly off into space????
If gravity is holding all of this sea of air in place, where will the atmosphere be the most dense?
Imagine that all of the atmosphere is pushing down So, we will feel the most weight of the atmosphere closer to the earths……
Temperature is how hot or cold the atmosphere is
What determines the temperature?
The temperature of a place is affected by the amount of the suns rays (solar radiation) that reaches the earths surface
REACHES THE EARTHS SURFACE
The earth is not warmed by the direct heating of the atmosphere by the suns rays
So we know that the atmosphere prevents some solar radiation (suns rays) from reaching the earths surface
So what would happen if the suns rays had to travel through more atmosphere?
What about if the suns rays were pointed at an angle?
Did you know the earth is tilted?
Look at the higher latitudes.What happens to the suns rays?
Look how much of the atmosphere the rays have to go through at the higher latitude
What is Weather? Energy is transferred between fast-moving molecules and slower-moving molecules – CONDUCTION – transfer of energy when molecules collide.
What is Global Warming?. Lesson Objectives: To understand what is meant by ‘global warming’ To know what we think causes global warming. To begin to understand.

Why Do We Have Weather? WHY DO WE HAVE THE WEATHER ? Just think about it! Just think about it! Why is there wind? Why does it blow from one direction.
Climate and weather are NOT the same Weather – the condition of the atmosphere in one place during a limited period of time Climate – the weather patterns.
Why Do We Have Weather?. An Introduction Take good notes! There will be a quiz at the end of this presentation.

Greenhouse Gases - (GHGs) & The Greenhouse Effect MODULE #1: C limate Change & Global Warming.
Why Do Climates Vary?. Latitude This means how far north or south a place is from the equator. The sun’s rays are concentrated at the equator but spread.
