Earth and Planetary Sciences - Climatology
The phenomenon of rise in average temperature of Earth's climate is known as global warming. Anthropogenic activities such as deforestation, burning of fossil fuels, use of aerosols, etc. are the driving force behind this worldwide occurrence. These actions of mankind release large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere along with other air pollutants like nitrous oxide and sulphur hexafluoride which then stays in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth's surface. These pollutants last for centuries further increasing the temperature of the earth. Global warming is responsible for many climate change phenomenon such as rise of sea level, cyclones, melting of glaciers and in extreme cases even extinction of species like dodo, ibex, dolphins etc. Some techniques like reforestation and energy conservation can be employed to mitigate the effects of global warming. The topics included in this book on global warming are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to readers. Those in search of information to further their knowledge will be greatly assisted by this book.
