The layer's of the Earth Atomsphere

The Earth atmosphere is more than just the air we breathe. It's also a buffer that keeps us from being peppered by meteorites, a screen against deadly radiation, and the reason radio waves can be bounced for long distances around the planet.

The earth is surrounded by a layer of gases called the atmosphere. The atmosphere is very important to life on Earth and does many things to help protect life and help life to survive.

The atmosphere protects Earth like a big blanket of insulation. It absorbs the heat from the Sun and keeps the heat inside the atmosphere helping the Earth to stay warm, called the Greenhouse Effect. It also keeps the overall temperature of the Earth fairly steady, especially between night and day. So we don't get too cold at night and too hot during the day.

the Earth atmosphere is divided up to 5 major layers Exosphere , Thermosphere , Stratosphere , Troposphere, and also Mesosphere.

Exosphere - The last layer and the thinnest. It goes all the way to 10,000 km above the Earth's surface.

Thermosphere - The thermosphere is next and the air is very thin here.

Mesosphere - The mesosphere covers the next 50 miles beyond the stratosphere. This is where most meteors burn up upon entry.

Stratosphere - The stratosphere extends for the next 32 miles after the troposphere.

Troposphere - The troposphere is the layer next to the ground or surface of the Earth. It covers around 30,000-50,000 feet high.

Regional climate is often described as the average weather in a place over more than 30 years. A region's climate is often described, for example, as sunny, windy, dry, or humid.

Earth's global climate is an average of regional climates. The global climate has cooled and warmed throughout history. Today, we are seeing unusually rapid warming. The scientific consensus is that greenhouse gases, which are increasing because of human activities, are trapping heat in the atmosphere.

The atmosphere is divided into layers according to major changes in temperature.Gravity pushes the layers of air down on the earth surface.This push is called air pressure 99% of the total mass of the atmosphere is below 32 kilometers.

Atmosphere temperature is a measure of temperature at different levels of the earth atmosphere. In the Earth's atmosphere,temperature varies greatly at different heights relative to the Earth's surface. The coldest temperature lie near the mesopause, an area approximately 85 km(62 mi) above the surfa

Half of the air making up our atmosphere is squished down into the first three layers, and 90% of the atmosphere is squished into the first 10 miles (16km). Above this altitude the air is so thin that the pressure is even less than that of the best vacuums on the surface of the Earth.
