I will complete on a timely manner. Thanks for the request.
Hello Kathy! I am checking in on the lab. By the way, the final paper looks awesome! Thank you for the help. I am posting a couple of questions today and need 2-3 sentence responses. I will request you and they are due tomorrow by 8pm EST.
ok I am working on your lab next
I just posted 2 different questions and requested you. Also I just realized the other lab that is due by tomorrow 9-12-11 appears that i accepted it before you posted the answer.
Not sure how I did that, sorry for the confusion.
You did accept the question for tomorrow's lab, I saw the questions for tomorrow also
First, view the effects of heat-trapping pollution on Earth's temperature in 1750, the current year, and 2050. Your goal is to help decision-makers see how as the blanket of pollution becomes thicker, more heat is trapped, which causes the average global temperature to rise. In the simulation yellow photons (sunlight) are entering the atmosphere. Red photons (heat) are being released from the Earth's surface. Some red photons escape Earth's atmosphere, but others are trapped by the blanket of greenhouse gases.
Complete the following steps:
Click on the microscope icon (on the right), which allows you to "zoom into" the blanket and view the action of the top three heat-trapping pollutants. Complete the following steps:
1. Select CO2. Observe how it responds to the sun's heat (red photons). What percent of red photons is it affected by (does it trap)? Repeat this exercise for CH4 and N2O.
2. Note of which molecules seem to be most and least frequently affected by infrared photons. The more powerful a greenhouse gas is, the more frequently it is affected.
Once you have completed the above steps, use your findings and the course's readings to complete the lab questions below.
Kathy, I apologize you will not beable to complete this lab because you have to login to coarse website. Although I could use some help with last 2 questions. Can you please answer lab question 4 and 5?
4.Briefly describe three impacts of climate change on ecosystems and biodiversity.
5. Briefly describe three impacts of climate change on people - e.g., economic, health, safety, national security.
Please send in DOC file asap!!!!
Thank you Kathy!
