The layer of the atmosphere closest to Earth is the troposphere. Itextends up to about 30,000 feet above the Earth's surface.
1. Troposphere (8-18km above Earth's surface). 2.Stratosphere (50km above Earth's Surface). 3. Mesosphere (50-85km). 4.Thermosphere (85-450km). 5.Exosphere (450-10,000km)
The Troposphere is nearest and extends from the surface of the earth to approximately 10 thousand metres above the surface. This explains why the air is described as being 'thin' when at the top of some of the highest mountains of the World. Hope this helps.
The TROPOSPHERE, which contains all human habitation and almost all weather. It extends up to about 10 km (6 miles, 30,000 feet) above the surface.
The thermosphere is the highest layer that contains enough molecules (notably oxygen) to absorb thermal energy from sunlight. Although it is technically very hot, it is also nearly a vacuum by atmospheric standards, which means very little energy can actually be transferred. Most orbital space fli…ghts, and the International Space Station, are within the thermosphere. The tiny amount of atmospheric friction there is still enough to slow a satellite over a long period of time, causing many (such as Skylab) to fall from orbit. (MORE)
The Exosphere is the farthest atmospheric layer. . Here is a link to suppor thishttp:/en.wikipedia.orgwiki/Exosphere
Arctic is at the top, at the North Pole. . Antarctic is at the bottom, at the South Pole. Remember this is just the way we've chosen to draw our maps, with North at the top.
the layers of the atmosphere are the troposphere, the stratosphere, the mesosphere, then the thermosphere. they are in order.
The layers of the atmosphere are thetroposhphere where most of the weather occurs and this is the layer we live on. The stratospher is the layer that contains thes ozone and 19% of the gasses. The moseospher is the thirs layer and is the coldest plus meteors burn up in this layer. The thermospher is… the 4th layer and the warmest. The exosphere is the outer most layer and is often called outerspace. (MORE)
Orders Orders are the highest category of soil classification. Order types end in the letters sol. In the US classification system, there are 10 orders:  . Entisol - recently formed soils that lack well-developed horizons. Commonly found on unconsolidated sediments like sand, some have an A… horizon on top of bedrock. . Vertisol - inverted soils. They tend to swell when wet and shrink upon drying, often forming deep cracks that surface layers can fall into. . Inceptisol - young soils. They have subsurface horizon formation but show little eluviation and illuviation. . Aridisol - dry soils forming under desert conditions. They include nearly 20% of soils on Earth. Soil formation is slow, and accumulated organic matter is scarce. They may have subsurface zones (calcic horizons) where calcium carbonates have accumulated from percolating water. Many aridiso soils have well-developed Bt horizons showing clay movement from past periods of greater moisture. . Mollisol - soft soils with very thick A horizons. . Spodosol - soils produced by podsolization. They are typical soils of coniferous and deciduous forests in cooler climates. . Alfisol - soils with aluminum and iron. They have horizons of clay accumulation, and form where there is enough moisture and warmth for at least three months of plant growth. . Ultisol - soils that are heavily leached. . Oxisol - soil with heavy oxide content. . Histosol - organic soils. Other order schemes may include: . Andisols - volcanic soils, which tend to be high in glass content. . Gelisols - permafrost soils. (MORE)
The atmosphere layer that is thinnest in size is the upper layer, the exosphere. 1. The troposphere is the first layer above the surface and contains half of the Earth's atmosphere. Weather occurs in this layer. 2. Many jet aircrafts fly in the stratosphere because it is very stable. Also, the… ozone layer absorbs harmful rays from the Sun. 3. Meteors or rock fragments burn up in the mesosphere. 4. The thermosphere is a layer with auroras. It is also where the space shuttle orbits. 5. The atmosphere merges into space in the extremely thin exosphere. This is the upper limit of our atmosphere. (MORE)
The Troposhere is the closest layer. It contains approximately 75% of the atmosphere's mass and (99%) almost all of its Water Vapor And Areosols
I think there are 5 layers in our atmosphere; It is thickest near the surface and thins out with height until it eventually merges with space. .

If you wanna know more, then see the related links. There are 4 main layers, however 1 of them is divided in half. Troposphere Stratosphere Mesosphere Thermosphere (top half is: Exosphere) (bottom half is: Lonosphere) (MORE)
the whole list of Earths atmosphere is the Troposphere, Stratosphere, Mesosphere, Thermosphere, Ionosphere, and the exosphere
That depends on what you mean by the "first" layer.\n. \nThe lowest layer (the first off the ground) is the Troposphere.\n. \nThe highest layer (the first coming in from space) is the Exosphere.
The ozone layer (molecular formula O3) filters out most of the UV-A and UV-B rays which can harm organisms by damaging DNA within their cells. This layer is mainly in the stratosphere which is 10-50km above the earth's surface where the conditions persist which allow ozone to be formed. If you broug…ht all of the ozone in the atmosphere down to sea level it would make a layer less then 1mm thick!! Hense protecting it by reducing production of CFCs (1 molecule of CFCs destroys around 1000 molecules of ozone) is so important (MORE)
The five layers of Earth's atmosphere are: 1. Troposphere 2. Stratosphere 3. Mesosphere 4. Thermosphere 5. Exosphere
The Layer of the Atmosphere which is closest to the earth's surface is the Troposphere
They are best known as; Troposphere, Stratosphere, (normally considered as under the ozone layer), Mesosphere, and, normally 'Thermosphere'. That is however rather old 'science', as the definable layers continue to the 'Exosphere' layers, or Ionosphere and Plasmasphere, which are part of the Magnet…osphere, which is not spherical but toroidal (donut shaped). Strictly the 'atmosphere' itself is the lower oxygen rich layer below the Mesosphere, but the word is also 'stretched,' due to want of another, to describe the (ever 'extending') whole structure inside the Earth Centred Inertial (ECI) Frame inside the ionized layer of the bow shock, which all orbits the sun.

See " Where is the ozone layer found? " in the "Related questions" section below.
The third layer of the earth's atmosphere is the Mesosphere, where meteors can be found.
The outermost layer of the earth is the lithosphere, from the greek "lithos" meaning stone. It includes all of the tectonic plates, and "floats" on the asthenosphere.
The Earth doesn't have a top or a bottom because it spins on its axis always changing the top or the bottom
The most widely used analysis of Earth's atmosphere is into five layers. From the surface of the planet out into space, they are: Troposphere - from the surface to between 7 and 17 km (depending on latitude) Stratosphere - Tropospheric boundary to about 50 km Mesosphere - ~50 km to ~85 km Ther…mosphere - ~85 km to between 350-800km (depending on solar activity) Exosphere - Thermospheric boundary to ~10,000 km (MORE)
The atmosphere is defined as the mixture of air above the earth's surface, all the way to space. There are different layers of the atmosphere, defined in different ways (for example, composition, temperature characteristics, etc.). The troposphere is the layer closest to the earth.
The outermost layer of earth's atmosphere is Thermosphere. It is the one in which satellite's fly.
This is the troposphere. This is the layer where weather occurs. The stratosphere is just above it, housing the ozone layer.
The lowest is the troposphere, which is the layer that provides most of our weather. It contains about 80% of the Earth's air, but extends only to a height of about 11 miles (17 kilometers) at the Equator and less at the Poles.
here they are in order: electrosphere, troposphere, ozonosphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere, ionosphere, magnetosphere, plasmasphere, exosphere, and gravisphere
the density and temperature of the layers. The farther you go up, the less dense each layer is.
Antarctica is located at the southern most point on the earth and encompasses the South Pole. Basically, it's at the bottom of the earth.
The troposphere is the portion of the atmosphere closest to earth. It is below the stratosphere.
The earth's atmosphere is separated into 4 main layers: . The troposphere, . The statosphere, . The mesosphere and . The thermosphere The Troposphere: The layer of the atmosphere closest to the Earth's surface, extending up to about 10-15 km above the Earth's surface. It contains 75% of the… atmosphere's mass. The troposphere is wider at the equator than at the poles. Temperature and pressure drops as you go higher up the troposphere. The Tropopause: At the very top of the troposphere is the tropopause where the temperature reaches a (stable) minimum. Some scientists call the tropopause a "cold trap" because this is a point where rising water vapour cannot go higher because it changes into ice and is trapped. If there is no cold trap, Earth would loose all its water! The uneven heating of the regions of the troposphere by the Sun causes convection currents and winds. Warm air from Earth's surface rises and cold air above it rushes in to replace it. When warm air reaches the tropopause, it cannot go higher as the air above it (in the stratosphere) is warmer and lighter ... preventing much air convection beyond the tropopause. The tropopause acts like an invisible barrier and is the reason why most clouds form and weather phenomena occur within the troposphere. The Greenhouse Effect: Heat from the Sun warms the Earth's surface but most of it is radiated and sent back into space. Water vapour and carbon dioxide in the troposphere trap some of this heat, preventing it from escaping thus keep the Earth warm. This trapping of heat is called the "greenhouse effect". However, if there is too much carbon dioxide in the troposphere then it will trap too much heat. Scientists are afraid that the increasing amounts of carbon dioxide would raise the Earth's surface temperature, bringing significant changes to worldwide weather patterns ... shifting in climatic zones and the melting of the polar ice caps, which could raise the level of the world's oceans. STRATOSPHERE This layer lies directly above the troposphere and is about 35 km deep. It extends from about 15 to 50 km above the Earth's surface. The lower portion of the stratosphere has a nearly constant temperature with height but in the upper portion the temperature increases with altitude because of absorption of sunlight by ozone. This temperature increase with altitude is the opposite of the situation in the troposphere. The Ozone Layer: The stratosphere contains a thin layer of ozone which absorbs most of the harmful ultraviolet radiation from the Sun. The ozone layer is being depleted, and is getting thinner over Europe, Asia, North American and Antarctica --- "holes" are appearing in the ozone layer. MESOSPHERE Directly above the stratosphere, extending from 50 to 80 km above the Earth's surface, the mesosphere is a cold layer where the temperature generally decreases with increasing altitude. Here in the mesosphere, the atmosphere is very rarefied nevertheless thick enough to slow down meteors hurtling into the atmosphere, where they burn up, leaving fiery trails in the night sky. THERMOSPHERE The thermosphere extends from 80 km above the Earth's surface to outer space. The temperature is hot and may be as high as thousands of degrees as the few molecules that are present in the thermosphere receive extraordinary large amounts of energy from the Sun. However, the thermosphere would actually feel very cold to us because of the probability that these few molecules will hit our skin and transfer enough energy to cause appreciable heat is extremely low.

Well, the Ozone layer is part of Earth's atmosphere, so it is both. The atmosphere is what makes the sky blue.
Any satellite would have to orbit Earth outside the atmosphere. If it orbits a an altitude at which there is still a significant amount of atmosphere, it would quickly lose energy and crash towards Earth.
The cuticle covers the top and bottom layer of the leaf because its a waxy layer that covers the non-woody above ground parts of most plants.
the third layer of the atmosphere would be the mesosphere . this is the layer that burns up the meteorites before they reach earth.
There are four spheres of Earth. Hydrosphere (water), atmosphere (air), geosphere (land), and biosphere (life).
The function of ozone layer is to protect us from sun's harmful UVrays. It is present in the stratospheric region.
The main function of ozone layer is to stop the harmful UV radiations coming from the sun. These are high energy waves that can cause serious damage to living organisms.
The weight of the matter that that makes up the lower 'layers' is held down by gravity. Also causing air pressure, hence compression. Inside the earth extreme heat and pressure makes it more dense which can cause nucleation and crystal growth
The ionosphere there are particles called ions in the ionosphere (hens the name). The ions cause radio waves from am radio stations to bounce off of it.
the layer of the atmosphere that holds oxygen is the troposphere and its pause is tropopause
Troposphere is the lowest layer of the atmosphere, which is adjacent to the earth's surface.
The four layers that constitute the earths atmosphere in order from space to the earths surface are as follows: Inosphere (aka. Aurora) @ 350km, Mesosphere @ 90-350km, Stratosphere @ 50-90km, and Troposhere @18-50km. It's composition is 79% Nitrogen, 20% Oxygen, and 1% other gases.
Yes, the ozone layer is a part of the earth's atmosphere. It ispresent in the startospheric region of the atmosphere.
The antarctic is at the bottm of the earth. The Arctic is at the top of the earth.
No. The atmosphere is the least dense layer. The densest layer is the inner core.
The upper layer is different from the bottom layer because the bottom layer has more gualities to a living thing than the upper layer.
The atmosphere protects the earth, it abosrbs the gamma rays and other harmful light rays
