Atmosphere

The Atmosphere is a term used to describe the mixture of different gasses that surrounds Earth. These gases consist predominantly of nitrogen, oxygen, argon, carbon dioxide, and water vapour. Most people believe the atmosphere is thick.

Ozone Layer

Ozone Layer, a layer of protective gas some 10-40 km above the earth which absorbs ultraviolet radiation (UV) from the sun, occurs naturally in our Atmosphere nearly all concentrated in the ozone layer, a region located in the stratosphere several miles above the surface of the Earth. S

Ultraviolet Radiation (UV)

Ultraviolet radiation (UV) is the energy range just beyond the violet end of the visible spectrum. Although ultraviolet radiation constitutes only about 5 per cent of the total energy emitted from the sun, it is the primary energy source for the stratosphere and mesosphere, and it’s vital in energy balance as well chemical composition.
