structure of Earth s atmosphere The structure is defined on the basis of the way temperature varies with height The warm stratosphere acts as a lid for the lower atmosphere thus weather systems develop and circulate only in the troposphere The tempera ture of the thermosphere varies with the intensity of solar ultraviolet radiation and this in turn varies with the sunspot cycle and solar activity in general Sunspots are dark areas on the face of the sun visible with telescopes or the partially shielded naked eye Sunspots cur in a definite cycle with periods of more or less sunspots

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
