Earth's heat engine does more than simply move heat from one part of the surface to another; it also moves heat from Earth's surface and lower atmosphere back to space. This flow of incoming and outgoing energy is Earth's energy budget.

The front of the Earth's Energy Budget poster depicts incoming, reflected, absorbed and emitted solar radiation. The back of the poster is divided into eight parts with background information, a lesson plan, a vocabulary matching activity and career information.
