Transcript of 5 Layers of the Atmosphere Chelsey Hodge

5 Layers of the Atmosphere (: Troposphere Stratosphere Mesosphere Thermosphere ionosphere The tropospher is the densest atomspheric layer, containing almost 90 percent of the atmosphere's total mass. Almost all of Earth's carbon dioxide, water vapor, clouds, air pollution, weather, and life-forms are found in troposphere In the stratospher the air is very thin and contains little moisture. Almost all of the ozone in thee atmosphere is contained in the ozone layer of the stratosphere. The mesosphere is the coldest layer of the atmosphere. As in the troposphere, the temperature drops with increasing altitude. The uppermost atmosphere layer. Here temperature again increases with altitude because many of the gases are absorbing solar radiation. In the upper part of the mesosphere and the lower thermosphere, nitrogen and oxygen atoms absor harmful solar energy, such as X rays and gamma rays. Electrically charged particles are called ions; therefore, this part of the thermosphere is referred to as the ionosphere.
