Oceans and Atmosphere

    Clouds form in the troposphere
  2. Image Upload 2
    Planes typically fly in the second layer of the atmosphere, the stratosphere.

    Meteors usually burn in the mesosphere.
  4. Image Upload 4Troposphere
    The temperature decreases with height in the troposphere
  5. Image Upload 5Stratosphere
    The temperature increases with height in the stratosphere
  6. Image Upload 6Mesosphere
    The temperature decreases with height in the mesosphere
  7. Image Upload 7Thermosphere
    The temperature increases with height in the thermosphere
  8. Image Upload 8Exosphere
    The temperature is mainly constant in the exosphere
  9. Image Upload 9
    The exosphere is the beginning of space.

    The thermosphere is where space shuttles orbit

    Birds fly in the troposphere
  12. Image Upload 12
    Most of the atmosphere's water is in the trophospher

    The Benthic zone covers the entire ocean floor

    The epipelagic zone (the sunlight zone or euphotic zone, the first 200 meters below the surface) is where photosynthesis mainly happens.
  15. Image Upload 15
    The mesopelagic zone (twilight zone or disphotic zone, 200-1000 meters under the surface) is where there is not enough light for photosynthesis, but there is enough light for semi-deep sea creatures.

    The bathypelagic zone (midnight zone or aphotic zone, from 1000-4000 meters under the surface)  is so dark some of its creature don't have eyes.

    The neritic zone is the shallow zone just before the continental drop off.
  18. Image Upload 18
    The pelagic zone is the entire water column of the ocean.  It's almost everything but the benthic zone (sea floor).
  19. Image Upload 19
    The abyssopelagic zone (part of the midnight zone or aphotic zone, 6000-8000 meters below the surface) is where its so dark that some fish emit their own light.

    The hadalpelagic zone is the deep trenches of the ocean.
