What is the atmosphere made of; how many layers of the atmosphere are there, and how are they divided?

     Read the handout "Meteorology" as explained in class and plot the altitude/temperature onto the "Atmosphere" chart provided. Use the notes you took from your reading in order to answer your Hypothesis. LABEL the chart with the correct layers, including the ozone layer.

Questions to think about before writing your Conclusion
*What is the method for dividing the atmosphere into layers?
*Explain your chart. Why does the temperature increase or decrease with altitude in the Troposphere? Stratosphere? Mesosphere? Thermosphere?
