The Layers of the Sun's Atmosphere
Transcript of The Layers of the Sun's Atmosphere
. Source: phobos.physics.uiowa.edu/~kaaret/sgu_s05/L09_sun_outer.ppt The picture was a sunspot. They are located in the Photosphere. The picture was a coronal mass ejection.
They can damage Earth's satellites that we use for our cell phones. They also cause the Aurora Lights. Source: phobos.physics.uiowa.edu/~kaaret/sgu_s05/L09_sun_outer.ppt Solar Flare These can be
up to 40,000,000 K
(71999540.6 ºF) This is the approximate size of the
Earth compared to a solar flare. These are relitavely similar to coronal mass ejections. This layer can only be seen during a solar eclipse. This layer is hotter than the photosphere (the inner layer). The reason why is unknown. This layer emits a high energy radiation that can be observed using X rays. This is the layer of the sun's
atmosphere that we can see
all the time during the day
without clouds. Each of these layers have
a different tempurature. The rotation of the sun is measured with the sunspots in the photospere. The Equator takes about 25 days for a full rotation while the poles take up to 36 days.
