About where in the atmosphere is the tropopause located? Is it higher and warmer than the stratopause? 2. The Earth’s energy curve peaks in what part of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum? What about the Sun? What kind of EM energy would a very cold (3K) object emit? 3. T/F: as much as 4% of the atmosphere can be made up of water vapor near the surface in humid regions. 4. T/F: Anything with a temperature (> 0K) emits energy all the time. What Law quantifies this relationship? 5. How does the Earth’s tilt cause seasons? During which months is the Southern Hemisphere the warmest? 6. If the energy budget reveals a deficit at your location in clear, calm situations, is it mid-morning, late afternoon, or just after sunrise?
