The issue of global warming has never failed to attract people's attention. This report analyses the ways that global warming affect ecosystem with explaining the result of greenhouse and global warming. There are some cases which will be shown with detailed date. Results

Greenhouse effect

Rise of CO2 and temerature

Recent sea level rise

(Robert A. Rohde 2009)

Acidizing ocean

(Kotz, J. C.1998)


Greenhouse and global warming
The short-wave solar radiations easily go through atmosphere have high speed and then most of the energy absorbed by surface of earth. But the earth radiates atmosphere as long-wave heat energy which is difficult to escape to space because of being held by carbon dioxide, vapour and methane. Carbon dioxide accounts for 0.03% of atmosphere over other two gases. As the carbon dioxide increase, the greenhouse effect is enhanced which lead to the average temperature increase and the atmosphere is becoming warmer and warmer. The Earth will warm another 1.1 to 6°F this century because the carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels and excess deforestation. The most pronounced effects of increasing temperature has been melting of masses of ice around the world and expanding of water. During the 20th century, sea level rose about 15-20 centimeters (roughly 1.5 to 2.0 mm/year). At same time the pH of ocean is decreasing...
