  1. Weather How do factors in the Earth's atmosphere impact weather patterns?

  2. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Earth’s atmosphere is divided into several different atmospheric layers extending from the Earth’s surface outward: • Troposphere • Stratosphere • Mesosphere • Thermosphere • Exosphere

  3. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Troposphere Temperature: • As altitude increases, temperature decreases!

  4. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Troposhpere Gases: • Nitrogen and oxygen are found in ALL layers of the atmosphere • There are other trace gases in the troposphere

  5. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Troposphere Air Pressure: • Greatest amount of pressure

  6. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Troposphere Interesting Facts: • Where we live • Where weather happens

  7. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Stratosphere Temperature: • Cold!

  8. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Stratosphere Gases: • Nitrogen • Oxygen • Ozone

  9. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Stratosphere Air Pressure: • Decreases as you move through the layers

  10. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Stratsosphere Interesting Facts • Planes fly in this layer • This is where the ozone layer is • Absorbs ultraviolet radiation (UV)

  11. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Mesosphere Temperature: • Coldest Layer

  12. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Mesosphere Gases: • Nitrogen • Oxygen

  13. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Mesosphere Air Pressure: • Decreases as you move through the layers

  14. LEQ 1: What are the characteristics of the main layers of the atmosphere? • Mesosphere Interesting Facts • Meteroids burn up in this layer • This can cause meteor trails.
