Carbon cycle I can draw and label the carbon cycle I can color code my diagram (look at your notes and you can place a picture here of your work). Puts CO2 into the atmosphere Takes CO2 out of the atmosphere Carbon sink TICKET TO RETAKE QUIZ: My definitions are done My pictures are done My scales are done I can explain the greenhouse effect The greenhouse effect is a natural process that warms the Earth's surface. When the Sun's energy reaches the Earth's atmosphere, some of it is reflected back to space and the rest is absorbed and re-radiated by greenhouse gases I know what gasses make up the atmosphere Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon, Carbon Dioxide I know how CO2 levels are measured from thousands of years ago From small samples of ancient air stored in glacial ice. I know what the keeling curve is The Keeling Curve is a graph of the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere I know the difference between carbon source and carbon sink Carbon source stores carbon. Carbon sink is a asset that takes carbon from the atmosphere Level 4 Level 3: Proficient Level 2: Progressing towards Proficient I know what gasses are responsible for the greenhouse effect and how they affect global temperatures water vapor, ozone, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. These gases help trap the sun’s warmth in the planets lower atmosphere. I know the relationship between CO2 levels in the atmosphere and the deforestation of the Amazon forest the fallen trees are burned or left to rot, additional carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere. Based on the carbon cycle, I can predict how More fossil fuels mean more,co2 being produced, which could lead to global warming and death in the biosphere, the parts of the cycles will be affected when animals and humans. burning of fossil fuels increase I can explain how government regulations on CO2 emissions have changed over time and the effects of those changes. I can predict future changes based on new regulations. Word Definition Picture combustion the process of burning something. Fossil fuels a natural fuel such as coal or gas, formed in the geological past from the remains of living organisms. the trapping of the sun's warmth in a planet's lower atmosphere due to the greater transparency of the atmosphere to visible radiation from the sun than to infrared radiation emitted from the planet's surface. Greenhouse effect Atmosphere the envelope of gases surrounding the earth or another planet Carbon sink a forest, ocean, or other natural environment viewed in terms of its ability to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere Carbon source A pool (reservoir) that releases carbon to another part of the carbon cycle.
