  • Global Climatic Change Ocean currents
    • greenhouse effect
      • controls the energy & heat of the earths surface and atmosphere
    • ocean currents
      • Gulf stream
      • Driven by:
        • Evaporation
        • wind
        • change in density
      • El Nino-(bad)
        • La Nina-(worse)
  • controls the energy & heat of the earths surface and atmosphere
  • Natural phenomenon
    • greenhouse effect
    • enhanced greenhouse effect
      • caused by:
        • methane
          • comes from: landfill, anaerobic respiration (e.g. rice paddy fields)
        • carbon dioxide
        • nitros oxides
          • comes from: vehicle engines and power stations
        • CFCs
        • Tropospheric ozone
          • comes from: photochemical breakdown of NOx
