7 Concept review - Lecture 3 • The earth is heated and cooled by electromagnetic radiation • The speed of a wave depends on its wavelength and frequency [qualitative relation] • The electromagnetic (EM) spectrum shows the wavelength of various types of EM radiation • The Sun and Earth both emit EM radiation [Figure 3-8]: – The Sun emits more radiation than Earth at all wavelengths – The Sun emits most of its radiation at short (visible, UV) wavelengths – The Earth emits all of its radiation at long (infrared) wavelengths • Wein’s Law: hotter bodies emit EM radiation at shorter wavelengths than do colder bodies [qualitative relation] • A fraction of the insolation received at the top of Earth’s atmosphere is absorbed by Earth’s surface • Earth’s surface emits infrared/longwave radiation ; some of it gets trapped by greenhouse gases ; greenhouse gases make it warmer
