Why is the atmosp

Answer :

  • The atmosphere is essential for life because it maintains a suitable climate for sustaining life. It does so by:

  • Maintaining proper temperatures throughout day and night. It keeps the average temperature of Earth constant during day and prevents the heat from escaping during the night.

  • The atmosphere contains the gases that we need to stay alive (Eg, oxygen).

  • It acts like a protective blanket. It does not allow harmful UV radiations from reaching us. 

  • Without the atmosphere the water cycle would not be possible.
