Layers of the Atmosphere Chapter 1 Section 4
Earth’s Atmosphere Four Main Layers Troposphere StratosphereMesosphere Thermosphere
Troposphere 1st layer of atmosphere All weather occurs here0 to 6 miles up Gets colder as you go higher All weather occurs here Contains almost all of Earth’s gases
Stratosphere 2nd layer of atmosphere Ozone Layer, O36 to 30 miles up Gets warmer as you go higher Ozone Layer, O3 Absorbs Ultra Violet light from sun
Mesosphere 3rd layer of atmosphere Meteorites burn up “shooting star”30 to 50 miles up Gets colder as you go higher Meteorites burn up “shooting star”
Thermosphere 4th layer of atmosphere Contains… Ionosphere Exosphere50 to space miles up Gets hotter as you go higher Up to 1800 oC Melts steel Contains… Ionosphere Exosphere
Ionosphere Sun’s energy cause gas particle to be come electrically charged We can bounce radio wave off of them Aurora borealis Aurora australis
Exosphere Exo = “outer” Satellites orbit here Transition to spacePhones Television
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 27 Describe any problems that you have had finding the information for your weather chart.
Atmosphere Layers. Layers of the Atmosphere exosph ere 0 to about15 km 15 km to about 50 km 50 km to about 100 km 100 km to about 500 km Above about 500.
Earth’s Atmospheric Layers. Troposphere Distance above sea level: 0-16 km Average Temperature: -64º to 134º F Warm air rises to form clouds, rain falls.
Layers of the Atmosphere. First Layer Scientists divide the atmosphere into four main layers based on the changes in temperature. The Troposphere.
EARTH’S ATMOSPHERE Chapter 14.1 Pages
Chapter 4.1- Earth’s Atmosphere Pages Earth’s Atmosphere Atmosphere- a thin protective layer of air that surrounds the Earth and makes life possible.
Atmosphere The envelope of gases that surrounds the Earth Composed of:
Atmosphere Notes. What is it? Atmosphere is a mixture of gases that surrounds Earth. – –Contains oxygen you breathe – –Protects from sun’s rays
Layers of the Atmosphere Notes
The Atmosphere Essential Question: What is the significance of the atmosphere to the existence of life on earth? pp
Layers of the CH 15 Prentice Hall p CH 15 Prentice Hall p Atmosphere At ppt.
Earth’s Atmosphere. What newsworthy weather events have you noticed in the media?
Layers of the Atmosphere Divided depending on Temperature
Our Living Sphere From Earth to Space. Scientists divide Earth into four spheres: the LITHOSPHERE, ATMOSPHERE, HYDROSPHERE and BIOSPHERE. *
Lower Layers of Atmosphere Troposphere: lowest layer – extends up to 10km; contains 99% of the water vapor and 75% of the atmospheric gases The troposphere.
Earth’s Atmospheric Layers. Troposphere Distance above sea level: 0-16 km Average Temperature: -50º to 70º F All weather happens here. Warm air rises.
Earth’s Atmosphere The Earth is surrounded by a blanket of air called the atmosphere. It extends over 372 miles (560 kilometers) from the surface of Earth.
DO NOW The Atmosphere Hill Science 6. The Atmosphere 1. Which layer is the densest layer of the atmosphere containing almost 90% of the atmosphere’s mass?
temperature Gases Layers Density Misc.
