What makes up our atmosphere? Nitrogen Oxygen Argon
Atmospheric Pressure There is less air at higher altitudes. Force of 10 Newtons at Sea Level
Atmospheric Pressure As altitude INCREASES Air Pressure DECREASES DECREASES
Temperature Varies with increase in altitude Why? Solar energy absorption varies as it moves down through the atmosphere.
Troposphere Layer closest to the Earth –Almost all water vapor and CO 2 Temperature DECREASES Tropopause is the upper boundary –It varies with latitude
Stratosphere From tropopause to 50 km –Contains almost all ozone Temperature INCREASES Stratopause is the upper boundary
Mesosphere From 50-80 km –Coldest layer Temperature DECREASES Mesopause is the upper boundary
Thermosphere N and O absorb solar energy Temperature INCREASES 2 Layers –Ionosphere- lower region –Exosphere- upper region
Tropopause Stratopause Mesopause Exosphere Troposphere Stratosphere Mesosphere Thermosphere Ionosphere

Do Now Put the layers of the atmosphere in order: (stratosphere, thermosphere, troposphere, mesosphere). In which layer do we live? In which layer is the.
The troposphere is the lowest region in the Earth's (or any planet's) atmosphere. On the Earth, it goes from ground (or water) level up to about 11 miles.

6-4.1 Atmospheric layers Compare the composition and structure of Earth’s atmospheric layers (including the gases and differences in temperature and pressure.
Layers of the Atmosphere SC SC Layers of the Atmosphere The atmosphere is the layer of gases that surrounds the planet and makes conditions.
Weather - Atmosphere. What causes weather? Water in the atmosphere causes the weather we have on Earth.
Composition Nitrogen (N 2 ): 78% Oxygen (O 2 ): 21% Other Gases: 1% Argon (Ar): 0.934% Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 ): 0.037% Water Vapor (H 2 O): 0.01.

THE ATMOSPHERE (chapter 24.1)
The Atmosphere. Composition of the Atmosphere Nitrogen makes up 80% of our atmosphere Oxygen makes up 21% Argon makes up almost 1% All other gases have.
Gasses make up the air around us Primary gasses are Nitrogen and Oxygen Small amounts of many other gasses are present.
Earth’s atmosphere is divided into several different atmospheric layers extending from the Earth’s surface outward: › Troposphere › Stratosphere › Mesosphere.
