What is green house effect? How is it caused?

Asked by Topperlearning User | 12 Mar, 2015, 04:39: PM
Expert Answer

Some gases such as carbon dioxide and methane present in the Earth's atmosphere prevent the escape of heat from the Earth by absorbing the infrared rays from the Sun. An increase in the percentage of these greenhouse gases in the atmosphere causes an increase in the average temperature worldwide. This phenomenon is known as 'Greenhouse Effect'.
