layer of air surrounding the earth
the lowest layer of the atmosphere, in which temperature decreases at a constant rate as altitude increases
the layer of the atmosphere that contains the ozone layer; temperature increases as you go up
the layer of the atmosphere between the stratosphere and the thermosphere and in which temperature decreases as altitude increases
The uppermost layer of the atmosphere, in which temperature increases as altitude increases, The outer layer of the thermosphere, extending outward into space.
The way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.
the transfer of thermal energy by the circulation or movement of a liquid or gas
the direct transfer of heat from one substance to another substance that it is touching
the direct transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves
The amount of heat that must be absorbed or lost for 1 gram of a substance to change its temperature by 1°C.
movement of air from land to sea at night, created when cooler, denser air from the land forces up warmer air over the sea
movement of air from sea to land during the day when cooler air from above the water moves over the land, forcing the heated, less dense air aboce the land to rise
The warmest layer, and the layer before the exosphere
layer of electrically charged particles in the thermosphere that absorbs AM radio waves during the day and reflects them back at night
