Atmosphere Essential Question: How are we changing our atmosphere? Learning Goals: Be able to identify the layers of the atmosphere. Describe what molecules make up the atmosphere. Atmosphere Atmosphere
Controlled atmosphere storage refers to the constant monitoring an d adjustment of the CO and O levels within gas tight stores or containers The gas mixture will constantly change due to metabolic activity of the respiring fruits and vegetables in t
ATMOSPHERE Composition of the Atmosphere The atmosphere is comprised of a variety of gases: Major Constituents (99%): Nitrogen (N): 78% Oxygen (O 2 ): 21% Trace Constituents: Other: 1%
Key Terms. Atmosphere. – a thin envelope of gases that encircles the earth and other particles (aerosols). Weather. – the state of the atmosphere at a specific place and time. Meteorology. – the study of the atmosphere and the processes that cause weather.
and the Impact on Living Things. Earth’s Atmosphere. The gases that surround Earth (and other planets) make up the atmosphere. These gases are like an envelope that protects us from the radiation that is caused by the sun’s .

Sunrise . from space over the South China Sea. An astronaut would see something like this; clearly defined bands of color through the atmosphere as the sun rises. High-peaking cumulus clouds, topping out in anvil-head cirrus can be seen as black shadows against the sunlit horizon. The brightness of the colors in the atmosphere in this photograph is due to the amount of dust in the atmosphere. More dust is found in near the equator. There are various sources for such upper level dust. Many dust storms in Africa and ash clouds from major volcanic eruptions are two reasons. .

Earths atmosphere changes con stantly as these gases are added and removed For example ani mals remove oxygen when they breathe in and add carbon dioxide when they breathe out Plants take in carbon dioxide and add oxygen to the atmosphere when they
