The atmosphere plays an important role in regulating the earth’s heating supply. The atmosphere protects the earth from too much solar radiation during the day and prevents most of the heat from escaping at night. Without the filtering and insulating properties of the atmosphere, the earth would experience severe temperatures similar to other planets. indb 32 11/1/12 1:55 PM Weather Elements 33 On bright clear nights the earth cools more rapidly than on cloudy nights because cloud cover reflects a large amount of heat back to earth, where it is reabsorbed.

Color, roughness, and material can affect the temperature indicated if the thermometer is left in the sun. In temperature recording activities for official purposes, all temperatures are recorded in the shade to prevent recording of the conductivity of the glass or metal of the thermometer and not the heat of the air mass. The sun is the weather generator. Thus, it should not be surprising that inventors have been trying to come up with some type of sunshine recorder— to track sunlight during a daylight period.

Indb 23 11/1/12 1:55 PM 24 Chapter 2 molecule is 18. 4 liters (of the gas) weighs 18 grams. 8 grams. 286 grams per liter, but if we substitute water for some of the air, the mixture becomes light. So, if there’s water (humidity) in the air, the air mixture becomes lighter. Recall that we stated that a weather element, such as air pressure, is something that we can measure in the atmosphere. Because air at a higher temperature is less dense than the cooler air over another air, it rises. This movement, in turn, generates difference in pressure between different areas.
