Greenhouse Gases (GHGs)

Greenhouse gases (GHGs)

Greenhouse gases (GHGs) are gases in the Earth’s atmosphere that trap heat and contribute to the greenhouse effect, resulting in the planet’s warming. Carbon dioxide (CO₂), ozone (O₃), methane (CH₄), and nitrous oxide (N₂O) are among the major gases responsible for the increase in atmospheric temperatures.
