LECTURE THREE The Global Energy Balance

CLASS LECTURE: GLOBAL ENERGY BUDGET: Review the power point lecture from class. Warning: this may not have the most up to date file. This is only a general overview it does not include all the diagrams, drawings, and discussions from class but it is a good place to start and a helpful review


Check out this interactive animation explaining the "Global Energy Budget"

If that one didn't work try this one!
Or watch both and master the idea forever.
Check out this totally awesome University of Oregon, Department of Geography global animations page.
Here they map the actual distribution of a number of variables throughout the year including: global energy balance, insolation, temperature, sensible heat, latent heat, atmospheric conditions, ocean water balance, and more!!!
