Weather

What is our climate system?

Atmosphere: 

The atmosphere covers the Earth. 

It is a thin layer of mixed gases which make up the air we breathe. 

This thin layer also helps the Earth from becoming too hot or too cold. 

Oceans: 

Oceans cover about 70 percent of Earth's surface. 

Their large size and thermal properties allow them to store a lot of heat. 

Land: 

Land covers 27 percent of Earth's surface and land topography influences weather patterns. 

Ice: 

Ice is the world's largest supply of freshwater. 

It covers the remaining 3 percent of Earth's surface including most of Antarctica and Greenland. 

Ice plays an important role in regulating climate, because it is highly reflective. 

Biosphere: 

The biosphere is the part of Earth's atmosphere, land, and oceans that support any living plant, animal, or organism. 

It is the place where plants and animals, including humans, live.
