  1. 1. By Vincent Carlos Grade 6 Levels of the Atmosphere
  2. 2. Atmosphere <ul><li>Is a mixture of different gasses. High above the planet it becomes thinner until it becomes reaches space. It is divided into five layers. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Troposphere <ul><li>It is the first layer of Earths atmosphere, it is where all weather takes place and most clouds form. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Tropopause <ul><li>Between the troposphere and stratosphere. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Solar Radiation <ul><li>Energy from the sun, would be harmful if it wasn't for the Ozone Layer. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Ultraviolet rays <ul><li>Sunlight </li></ul>
  7. 7. Ozone Layer <ul><li>Is in the stratosphere, protects earth from harmful solar radiation. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Stratosphere <ul><li>The third layer of the atmosphere. Absorbs the ultraviolet rays and solar radiation by use of the Ozone Layer. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Meteors <ul><li>Also known as falling stars. Are small pieces of rock, dust, or metal from space that enter the atmosphere, were they are burned up. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Mesosphere <ul><li>The fourth layer of the atmosphere. Is the coldest of the atmospheres and is were most meteors are burned up in. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Radio waves <ul><li>Carries sound through molecules, an example would be a radio. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Photons <ul><li>Light energy </li></ul>
  13. 13. Aurora <ul><li>Electrical charge in the ionosphere usually seen in the north pole. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Ionosphere <ul><li>Also known as the thermosphere. The fifth and last layer of the atmosphere. This layer is electrically charged and makes radio communication possible by reflecting radio waves. Absorbs the most energetic photons from the Sun. Is also were aurora takes place. </li></ul>
