The Earth’s Atmosphere

While looking through geography websites, I found this one to be quite interesting because it is a nice, short summary about our atmosphere.

Although, it is a nice, short summary it does not get into much detail about the composition of the different layers of our atmosphere. Remember, the homosphere describes the layers of the atmosphere that are well-mixed (which include the mesosphere, stratosphere and troposphere) while the heterosphere includes the thermosphere and exosphere.
Also, the diagram leaves out the thermopause, which is the outerboundary of our atmosphere.

I thought this is a good review and fun, interactive template to learn about Earth’s atmosphere. Simultaneously, it is disconcerting that such vital pieces of information could be left out of an explanatory diagram that many people learn from.
