Meteorology Week 3 Notes Chapter 3 Absorb the change in atmospheric particulate energy to reduce intense ER Heat Energy sensible heat temp Latent Energy Condensation and Evaporation Chemical Energy Reflect the redirection of energy by objects without being absorbed Albedo the of energy reflected by an object Fig on slide 5 Scattering the reflection of solar energy of atmospheric molecules contact Transmit the of energy transmitted through the atmospheres to to earth s surface Rayleigh the reflection of atmospheric molecules smaller than the wavelength Sky Color Mie the forward scattering process for particle sizes larger than the wavelength of incoming energy pretty sunsets white fog the more pollution the prettier the sunset Long Wave Radiation Net Radiation image long wave energy doesn t have a beginning or end point Radiation Equilibrium varies by latitude location between 38 N 38 S Energy Surpluses location beyond 38 N 38 S Energy Deficits Surplus and deficit zones migrate seasonally Energy balances create pressure inequalities winds Green house effect allows short wave radiation to enter a medium and be absorbed re radiated longwave radiation is trapped by same medium warming without gasses earth L8C OF Convection can be generated by two processes in fluids Free Convection buoyancy warmer less dense fluids rise Forced Convection Sensible and Latent Heat Sensible Heat higher mass requires more energy for heating Latent Heat we relate this to water in the atmosphere Energy must be supplied in order to melt an ice cube freeze water evaporate water or boil it to water vapor 4 states at the same time Northern Hemisphere has more land than southern hemisphere land heats and cools faster than water
