The artificial house which is made by glass or plastic inside which the temperature will be more than the outer environmental temperature is called greenhouse. The artificial greenhouse provides controlled environment for plants.
Various gasses are present in the atmosphere for example oxides of carbon, oxides of nitrogen and others act as a natural blanket for the earth. So, they let the short wave light rays of the sun reach the earth surface. But when the long wave light ray tries to return back to space, the layer of this gaseous layer and remain trapped in the earth. This is called natural greenhouse effect and earth act as a natural greenhouse.
Write down any four effects of the increase in the quantity of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
The four effects of the increase in the quantity of greenhouse in the atmosphere are: a) The temperature of the earth increases bringing out a change in the weather and affecting the whole environment. b) It affects the water cycle disrupting the systematic working of agriculture. c) The polar ice cap and glaciers start to melt causing an increase in sea level. d) The temperature of the earth's surface increases.
