  • This was taught to illustrate heat of vapourisation latent heat – that one cc of water would transport one calorie for every degree C, whereas that same cc of water would transport 540 calories as water vapour.

  • When oceans warm due to CO2, more vapourisation occurs, clouds form and they keep sunlight from reaching the earth.

    Analysis

  • And there’s an enormous amount of it – heat of vapourisation is a powerful beast. esceptico

  • The paper is not easy reading and I'm puzzled over comments regarding latent heat of vapourisation heating up the troposphere but perhaps some expert out there will clarify for me.)
