Greenhouse gases


These are natural and artificial gaseous elements of the atmosphere that absorb and emit thermal infrared radiation released by the Earth’s surface, the atmosphere, and clouds. This is the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) definition. Water vapor, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane, and ozone are the primary greenhouse gases (GHGs).
