convectionThe transfer of heat by the movement of a substance from one position to another.Convection can be forced(as in the heating systems of many houses) or natural (as in the transter of heat in fluids-air, water and molten rock-due to density differences).
greenhouse gasesGases found in Earth's atmosphere, generally in small (or "trace") amounts, that absorb and retain heat. Important greenhouse gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide (CO2),methane (CH4), chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), and nitrous oxide (N2O).
