The atmosphere is an envelope of gases that surround the Earth or any other plant. This layer of gases acts as a protective blanket as it is a thin layer around the earth. The atmospheric layer is held in its position due to the gravitational force on the earth.
- The atmosphere protects the entities on earth from the Sun which produces harmful radiations and also the scorching heat.
- It comprises tons of gases, water vapour and dust particles.
- Any fluctuation in the atmosphere will have an impact on the climate and weather conditions.
- Thus, the atmosphere is critical in preventing a sudden rise in the temperature during the daytime and in the nighttime, it reduces the rate of heat that escapes into the outer space.
