"Weather" as we know it is a phenomenon of the: troposphere

Global-scale wind currents are produced by: warm air rising and cool surface air drawn
in to replace it
Which of the following is NOT a greenhouse gas? ozone
Which of the following contributes to global cooling? (these are the choices not
answers) methane, carbon dioxide, ozone, nitrogen
Which of the following compounds absorbs earthshine in the wavelengths that typically pass
through the atmospheric window? CFCs
ozone protects this kind of radiation? UVA UVB UVC
The part of the atmosphere where weather occurs is the: troposphere
Constant energy input to a physical object will heat it up. Eventually it will reach a
temperature that will cause it to: radiate heat energy at the same rate it receives energy
Incoming solar radiation is partly reflected by the Earth's (atmosphere/land
surface/ocean surface)
The surface of the Earth reflects incoming solar energy. But not all surfaces reflect at the
same rate. Ice has approximately a 80-90 % reflection rate.
In the 1952 London Smog crisis, dark and cold weather led the population to burn more
coal. Burning more coal caused the weather to get more dark and cold. This type of
process, in which an initial stimulus causes itself to be amplified, is known as: positive
Ozone is not a primary pollutant from the burning of fossil fuels
Sulfur dioxide is a: colorless and odorless gas that damages the lungs
Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are:yellow-brown gases that contribute to photochemical smog
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a:gas with a "rotten egg" odor that is highly toxic and
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a:colorless and odorless gas that binds to hemoglobin in
Ozone (O3) is a reactive gas produced, in part, by photochemical reaction of sunlight with
various air pollutants
The pollutant most commonly associated with coal-fired electrical generation is SO2
CO2 increases the acidity of rainfall
Calcium-carbonate-rich soil decreases the effects of acid rain
In the lower atmosphere, ozone is produced by photochemical reactions
Sulfur dioxide emissions are caused by burning coal and automobile emissions
caulk windows and doors could a homeowner reduce the "chimney effect" in their home
Twelve days after a sample of radon gas (with a half-life of about four days) is emitted
into a sealed room, about 1/8 of the original amount remains
space heaters is NOT a potential source of radon
Radon gas is considered a threat to human health because it cause lung cancer
he combined effects of exposure to radon gas and smoking are greater than the sum of
the effects separately. This is an example synergism
Indoor air pollutants include all the following EXCEPT all of these are indoor air
When one particular indoor environment appears to be unhealthy, the phenomenon is
known as:sick building syndrome
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas.
Making houses energy efficient increases the concentrations of indoor air pollutants
One indoor air pollutant is a bacterium that normally lives in pond water but causes type
of pneumonia, called Legionnaire's disease, when inhaled
90 percentage of atmospheric ozone is in the stratosphere 100 years
type of radiation does ozone absorb most
The 1987 Montreal Protocol resulted in agreements to reduce the amount CfC introduced
into the atmosphere, because of destruction of ozone in the stratosphere
the Antarctic ozone hole occur the antarctic spring
all of these would be the effect(s) of ozone depletion in the stratosphere
Ozone is the triatomic variety of oxygen
Ozone is a strong oxidizing agent in the atmosphere
ozone blocks uvb radiation
chlorine destroys ozone in the stratosphere by a catalytic chain of reactions
When ozone blocks ultraviolet light, the ultraviolet light is converted to heat in the
