Topic– Part of static series under the heading – “Basics of Atmosphere”
6) Explain the division of the atmosphere into layers based on temperature classification and how each layer is significant for us? (250 words)
Key demand of the question
The question expects us to explain how the regions of the atmosphere are divided on the basis of temperature , the explanation of each layer along with the reasons how they are significant for us.
Structure of the answer
Introduction – Explain that as per the temperature classification, atmosphere can be divided into troposphere, the stratosphere, the mesosphere and the thermosphere.
Body – Note that you should draw a diagram in this question which will help you save up on words as well as provide an opportunity to cram in more facts and details. Explain the above layers and how they are significant for us. For instance, flights fly in tropopause to evade turbulence, the significance of ionosphere for radio communication etc.
