Weather Whys: What are the layers of the atmosphere?

Weather Whys

The Earth’s atmosphere is very complex but we can break it down to five layers. Starting from the surface of the Earth and moving up we have the Troposphere, the Stratosphere, the Mesosphere, the Thermosphere and the Exosphere. Each layer has a different composition of gasses and varies in thickness. Each one is also essential to life as we know it on Earth!
