    The Earth’s atmosphere has five distinct layers generally measured by temperature gradients, from the troposphere near the Earth's surface at an average 15 degrees Celsius to the temperature of the exosphere layer at 1, degrees Celsius. These layers create a habitable environment to sustain life. Protection Against Depletion of Stratospheric Ozone by Chlorofluorocarbons. National Academy Press, Washington, D.C. (). National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Present State of Knowledge of the Upper Atmosphere: Processes that Control Ozone and Other Climatically Important Trace gases; An Assessment Report.

    Atmosphere, composition and structure. Composition of the atmosphere. Atmospheric structure. The past and future of the atmosphere. Resources. Earth ’ s atmosphere is composed of about 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and % argon. The remainder, less than %, contains such trace gases as water vapor, carbon dioxide, and of these trace gases have important effects on Earth ’ s . An atmosphere (from Ancient Greek ἀτμός (atmos), meaning 'vapour', and σφαῖρα (sphaira), meaning 'ball' or 'sphere') is a layer or a set of layers of gases surrounding a planet or other material body, that is held in place by the gravity of that body. An atmosphere is more likely to be retained if the gravity it is subject to is high and the temperature of the atmosphere is low.
