ground zone of saturation

Why does the thermosphere have the highest temperature of all the atmosphere layers

The thermosphere is the first layer of the atmosphere where there are enough heavier molecules (oxygen) to absorb a significant anount of the Sun's radiation. Below the thermosphere, much of the heat is dissipated by convective currents.
Although technically "hot", the gas in the thermosphere is so thin that it can pass little heat to other molecules, and loss of heat by radiation would still cool objects in this part of the atmosphere.
the sun's radiation strikes it first

How do waves change as they approach the shore

As waves approach the shore, interaction with the sea floor slows the waves down and the crests of the waves bunch up. They increase in height as the energy in each wave compresses into a shorter horizontal distance, but the period of the wave does not change. Eventually, the waves break.

What inturment is used to measure then wind

The instrument which is used to measure wind is a anemometer. This tool is used to determine the direction in which the wind is blowing.

In what way does ocean water move globally

Along cold water currents from the poles to the equator.

In boiling water water molecules move apart and escape in the form of water vapor The process is called

evaporation

Which zone would be most difficult for a plant to live in

The zone that would be most difficult for a plant to live in is the Benthic zone. It is the zone at the lowest level of a body of water.

Why does Earth have a liquid water supply and Mars does not

Mars is too cold.

What causes the global convection current between the equator and the poles

Surface currents are caused by wind, and affected by the rotation of the Earth and the gravity of the moon (tides). When the oceans are deep, convection within the layers can also affect the flow of currents.

* While wind currents are greatly affected by uneven heating of the Earth's surface, there is no corresponding heating of the ocean bottom by the Sun. So currents do not form spontaneously at depth.

Radio waves heading upward from Earth often bounce off the

ionosphere

If you were plankton in which part of a lake would you most likely live

Plankton lives at the very top of lakes, to get optimal amounts of sunlight.

Why does the thermosphere have the highest temperature of all atmosphere layers

IT is closest to the sun

As water moves down through the ground what force is acting against it

i dont know

Why would a civilization choose to live near a river that regularly floods

The alluvial silt that covers the land during flooding increases its fertility. This is in addition to the ready supply of fresh water required for any large societal group.

Currents flow from the equator to the Poles

Intertropical convergence zone

Two wind systems originate here

Which results if water is heated and highly pressured underground

Which is a leading theory for the formation of fossil fuels

organic matter

Starting billions of years ago in what way did algae change the atmosphere of earth

Carbon dioxide was converted to oxygen.
