Atmosphere and change

What the IBO say you need to know:

  • Describe the functioning of the atmospheric system in terms of the energy balance between solar and longwave radiation.
  • Explain the changes in this balance due to external forcings (changes in solar radiation, changes in the albedo of the atmosphere and changes in the longwave radiation returned to space).
  • Discuss the causes and environmental consequences of global climate change.
