  • Vapor
  • 1. High Temperatures increase evaporation of ocean and lake water.

  • 2. More evaporation equates to more water vapor, which as a result of warmer temperatures also has more space to occupy in the air.

  • 3. Higher water vapor concentrations in the atmosphere result in containtment of heat

  • 4. A feedback loop is formed, which repeats itself time and time again, increasing average temperatures steadily.
  •  IV radiation
  • High Cloud
  • 5. In colder temperatures however, water vapor transforms into clouds. High clouds let UV radiation pass through from the sun, and reflect majority of the IV radiation back to the surface. Low clouds absorb most of the incoming UV radiation, and let the outgoing IV radiation pass higher into the atmosphere, reflecting only a small portion of IV to the surface.
