Improved Greenhouse Effect Sim

Photon Absorption Tab in Greenhouse Effect Sim
We just published a new version of the Greenhouse Effect sim with a new tab called “Photon Absorption.” This new tab lets you see how light (visible photons) and heat (infrared photons) interact with the different atmospheric gases: methane, carbon dioxide, water, nitrogen and oxygen. It also lets you build your own atmosphere so you can see what gases contribute most to the greenhouse effect.
