Thank you. 

1. A greenhouse layer increases the amount of heat energy in the ground layer. Where does this energy come from? 2. What factors in the layer model could affect the skin temperature? 3. Explain why a well-mixed column of gas is warmer on the bottom. 4. A parcel of air rises convectively in the atmosphere, losing its water as rain and getting cooler following the moist lapse rate. It gets sucked into an airplane, where it is recompressed to the pressure at the ground without replacing the water. Is this air warmer or colder than air at the ground? What is its relative humidity like? 5. What is the role of vegetation in a drought? 6. Why would storminess increase in a warming world? What kinds of storms could be affected? 7. What are the factors that would increase the risk of storm-surge flooding associated with tropical storms? 8. Why do some kinds of ice on Earth change the sea level when they melt and other kinds do not?
