Transcript of "L2 Task2 Atmosphere"

  1. 1. The Earth’s Atmosphere
  2. 2. In the darkest regions of deep space, the temperature is a chilly -450° Fahrenheit.
  3. 3. In the darkest regions of deep space, the temperature is a chilly -450° Fahrenheit. Closer to our Sun, temperatures reach thousands of degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. 4. All planets have an atmosphere, a layer of gases that surrounds them.
  5. 5. The Sun's atmosphere is made up of hydrogen.
  6. 6. Earth's is made up primarily of nitrogen and oxygen, carbon dioxide, ozone, and other gases are also present. The Sun's atmosphere is made up of hydrogen.
  7. 7. These gases keep our planet warm and protect us from the direct effects of the Sun's radiation.
  8. 8. These gases keep our planet warm and protect us from the direct effects of the Sun's radiation. Without this regulation, Earth could not sustain life.
  9. 9. The atmosphere is made up of several layers: the Troposphere , Stratosphere , Mesosphere , Ionosphere , and Exosphere .
  10. 10. T roposphere 10 miles
  11. 11. T roposphere 10 miles Most of the clouds you see in the sky are found in the troposphere, and this is the layer of the atmosphere we associate with weather.
  12. 12. T roposphere S tratosphere 10 miles 3 0 miles
  13. 13. T roposphere S tratosphere 10 miles 3 0 miles Includes the ozone layer. Ozone molecules, which are concentrated in this layer, absorb ultraviolet radiation from the Sun and protect us from its harmful effects.
  14. 14. T roposphere S tratosphere M esosphere 10 miles 3 0 miles 5 0 miles
  15. 15. T roposphere S tratosphere M esosphere 10 miles 3 0 miles 5 0 miles The coldest part of the atmosphere.
  16. 16. T roposphere S tratosphere M esosphere I onosphere 10 miles 3 0 miles 5 0 miles 18 0 miles
  17. 17. T roposphere S tratosphere M esosphere I onosphere 10 miles 3 0 miles 5 0 miles 18 0 miles Also called the thermosphere, Temperatures in the ionosphere can reach up to several thousand degrees Fahrenheit.
  18. 18. T roposphere S tratosphere M esosphere I onosphere E xosphere 10 miles 3 0 miles 5 0 miles 18 0 miles 50 0 miles
  19. 19. T roposphere S tratosphere M esosphere I onosphere E xosphere 10 miles 3 0 miles 5 0 miles 18 0 miles 50 0 miles This is the outermost layer of the atmosphere, the transition zone into space.
