Question 1:

Examine the figures below. Contrast the role the greenhouse effect plays in the atmospheres of (a) the Moon, (b) Earth, and (c) Venus.

Question 2: Compare and contrast weather and climate and how the atmosphere affects both.

Question 3: Examine the graph below. In your own words, describe why we see a seasonal difference in CO2 concentration in the atmosphere.

Question 4: Explain how clouds form. Why is the vertical movement of air critical to the formation of clouds and precipitation? What role do adiabatic temperature changes play in these processes? (Hint: What happens to air pressure with increasing elevation?)
