The type of 16 The quantities of carbon dioxide, other greenhouse gases and particles in the atmosphere undergo long-term variations that may play an important role in the earth’s radiation budget. 3). The burning of fossil fuels is the primary source of these increasing trace gas concentrations. Heating, transportation and industrial activities generate almost 5 ϫ 1020 J/year of energy. Oil and natural gas consumption account for 60 per cent of global energy and coal about 25 per cent. Natural gas is almost 90 per cent methane (CH4), whereas the burning of coal and oil releases not only CO2 but also odd nitrogen (NOx), sulphur and carbon monoxide (CO).

Atmospheric pressure, depending as it does on the weight of the overlying atmosphere, decreases logarithmically with height. e. the rate of change of pressure (p) with height (z) is dependent on gravity (g) multiplied by the air density (ρ). With increasing height, the drop in air density causes a decline in this rate of pressure decrease. 1). The relationship between pressure and height is so significant that meteorologists often express elevations in millibars: 1000 mb represents sea-level, 500 mb about 5500 m and 300 mb about 9000 m.
