Transcript of Atmospheric Layers

The Stratosphere #2
The Stratosphere is the second layer of the Atmosphere.
The Altitude of the Stratosphere is 11 to 30 miles wide.
The Stratosphere's air mass per unit is 9.59 km.
The barometric pressure is 1.1 to 79 millibars A millibar is one thousandth of a bar.
The Density of the Stratosphere is (0.0014 to 0.13 kg
The Troposphere is the lowest layer of the Earth's atmosphere
It has a height of 7 to 20 kilometer above sea level
The troposphere is made up of 78% of nitrogen, 21% of Oxygen, and a small amount of Trace.
The troposphere contains almost 90% of the atmosphere's total mass.
Its altitude is 0 to 7 miles
The density is 0.36


Carbon Dioxide &
The uppermost atmospheric layer in the atmosphere
Can reach about 1,700 degrees Celsius
Absorbs solar radiation beacuse there are gases that absorb them
Contains few particles that move fast, rarley touches each another
Does not transfer much energy
Related Vocab
Ozone- a colorless unstable toxic gas with a pungent odor
Temperature - the degree or intensity of heat present in a substance
Air pressure - The measure of the force
Atmosphere - A mixture of gases that surrounds the earth
Altitude - The height of an object above the earths surface
Atmospheric Layers
Coldest layer
Covers the next 50 miles
Where most meteors burn
Top of the mesosphere.
The mesosphere is located above the stratosphere.

The mesosphere starts at 50 km (31 miles) above Earth's surface and goes up to 85 km (53 miles) high.
The composition or the make up of the mesosphere is massive windstorms almost daily.
The ionosphere is also a big part of the mesosphere. The Ionosphere is located in the upper part of the mesosphere and in the lower part of the thermosphere.
The mesosphere (from the Greek words meso = middle and sphere = ball) is the layer of the Earth's atmosphere that is directly above the stratosphere and directly below the thermosphere.
The stratosphere and mesosphere are referred to as the middle atmosphere.
The Stratosphere is made up of...
The Stratosphere has a frozen Temperature of -70 -to 26 degrees Fahrenheit
