Chemoautotrough - an organism that gains its metabolic energy using energy from chemical reactions e.g. nitrifying bacteria (Nitrogen cycle)
Ozone - Triatomic oxygen
Stratosphere - Layer of atomsphere that absorbs UV and contains ozone. Above troposphere.
Dynamic Equilibrium - Combination of active processes that cancel eachother's effects out so there is no overall change e.g. Photosynthesis and Respiration
Troposphere - Layer of atmosphere below the Stratosphere.
Infrared Radiation - long wavelength electromagnetic radiation emitted from warm objects
Nuclear fusion - the release of energy during the joining of the nuclei of small atoms
Electromagnetic radiation - energy in the form of energy waves with a range of frequencies
Global Climate Change - the various changes to the climate caused by increased energy being retained in the atmosphere as a result of human activities e.g Combustion of fossil fuels
Greenhouse Effect - the natural processes by which atmospheric gases…
