Chapter 10 Notes Main things that affect temperature on planets: sunlight, reflection (albedo), rotation, and absorption of infrared light. Majority of gas in the atmosphere is nitrogen. Greenhouse effect has to do with the atmospheric absorption of infrared radiation. A greenhouse gas is one that effectively bounces around molecules coming from the Earth and keeping the heat from escaping the surface. Greenhouse gases include: Water (H20) and Carbon dioxide (CO2) Nitrogen is transparent to infrared making it not a greenhouse gas. Oxygen falls under this category as well. Our atmosphere is transparent to visible light. Without the greenhouse effect, the surface temperature on Earth would be below the
