Description (Dublin Core)

eng Water content of the atmosphere and its role in the greenhouse effect is investigated. Values of solar constant measured by satellite Nimbus-7 channel 100 have been used for calculating effective temperature of the atmosphere by Stefan- Boltzmann's law. The greenhouse effect is defined as the difference between the surface temperature and the atmosphere effective temperature. The yearly variation of greenhouse intensity was calculated. It was found that relation between greenhouse intensity and water vapor content is logarithmic.
hrv Proučene su količina i uloga vodene pare u atmosferi. Za procjenu efektivne temperature atmosfere Stefan-Boltzmannovim zakonom korištena je vrijednost solarne konstante izmjerena satelitom Nimbus-7 na kanalu 100. Efekt staklenika definiran je kao razlika između temperature na površini i efektivne temperature atmosfere.
Izračunata je godišnja varijacija intenziteta efekta staklenika, te je nađena logaritmička veza izme|u intenziteta efekta staklenika i količine vodene pare u atmosferi.
