Earth by Mind Map: Earth

1. nonrenewable energy Nonrenewable resources take millions of years to form and can be used up

2. “Greenhouse gases act like a blanket around the Earth trapping heat in the atmosphere.”

2.1. Troposphere - the lowest part of the astmosphere

2.2. Stratosphere - the layer of the earth's atmosphere above the troposphere, extending to about 32 miles (50 km) above the earth's surface (the lower boundary of the mesosphere).

2.2.1. Exosphere-the outermost region of a planet's atmosphere.

2.3. Mesospherethe region of the earth's atmosphere above the stratosphere and below the thermo sphere, between about 30 and 50 miles (50 and 80 km) in altitude.-

2.4. THeromosphere-the region of the atmosphere above the mesosphere and below the height at which the atmosphere ceases to have the properties of a continuous medium. The thermosphere is characterized throughout by an increase in temperature with height.

3. The atmosphere (AT-muh-SFEER) is the mixture of gases and particles 0 that surrounds and protects the surface of Earth.

4. 1 air / gas

5. The geosphere (JEE-uh-SFEER) includes all the features on Earth's surface-the continents, islands, and sea floor-and everything below the surface.

6. Biosphere

6.1. 1 [ living things]

6.1.1. Humans produce melanin to help protect their skin from the sun’s harsh UV radiation.

7. Atmosphere

8. Hydrosphere

8.1. [ water]

8.2. The hydrosphere includes all bod's of waters

9. Geosphere

9.1. [ earths surface]

10. Natrual Resources

10.1. Renewable Resources

10.1.1. Renewable resources can be replaced in a short period of time. Examples include plants, water, animals, and air.

10.2. Nonrenewable Resources

10.3. Alternative energy

10.3.1. Alternative energy, alternative energy is always available, this energy includes solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, biofuels

10.4. Earth's natural resources are not even distributed across the planet due to climate, Earth's history, and geological process.

10.5. Natural resources can be classified into 3 main categories - alternative energy, renewable, and nonrenewable
