The greenhouse effect

Technical Report:

Abstract

In this paper, the effect of the increase of the temperature of the earth`s atmosphere as a consequence of the increase in the CO{sub 2} and other trace gas content has been reviewed. The results of various model studies have been included. There is the frightening prediction that global mean temperature will rise by several degrees with the consequent rise of mean sea level. Model computations also show that in the tropics rainfall will increase whereas in the subtropics and southern mid latitude, rainfall will decrease. If this happens, mankind will be faced with a major disaster in history. Agreement between theory and observations has been discussed. (author). 16 refs, 8 tabs.
