  1. Layers of the Atmosphere Monday, 3/28/2011

  2. Do Now (T/F) • The earth’s atmosphere is the same as the sky. • Humans can easily travel from one layer to another layer without difficulty. • Humans can live on all of the layers of the atmosphere. • The temperature stays the same between all the layers of the atmosphere. • Because the atmosphere is the sky, weather can occur in all different layers of the atmosphere.

  3. You choose…

  4. What you should have found:

  5. This looks like:

  6. Facts About the Atmosphere Layers

  7. Reflect (T/F) • The earth’s atmosphere is the same as the sky. • Humans can easily travel from one layer to another layer without difficulty. • Humans can live on all of the layers of the atmosphere. • The temperature stays the same between all the layers of the atmosphere. • Because the atmosphere is the sky, weather can occur in all different layers of the atmosphere.

  8. Composition of the Atmosphere

  9. Composition of the Atmosphere Read and Think- Do Now • How does the atmosphere protect life on Earth? (3 ways) 2. What are the 5 layers of the atmosphere starting from Earth? (use yesterday’s notes) • Troposphere • Stratosphere • Mesosphere • Thermosphere • Exosphere

  10. You Predict

  11. Actually… Nitrogen: 78% Oxygen: 21% Argon: 0.9% Carbon Dioxide: 0.04% Other: water vapor, ozone, etc.

  12. Notes for the bottom of the page: Most of the atmospheric gases are in the troposphere. (Why might that be?) The density of the air decreases as you go further away from Earth.
