Clues

  • A combination of active processes that cancel out each others effects so that there is no overall change. (7, 11)
  • The layer of the atmosphere that absorbs UV and contains the ozone layer, temperature increases with altitude here. (12)
  • The layer of the atmosphere where meteors burn up, temperature decreases with altitude here. (10)
  • The layer of the atmosphere where the weather occurs, temperature decreases with altitude here. (11)
  • The layer of the atmosphere where X-rays are absorbed, space shuttles orbit here. (12)
  • The release of energy during the joining of the nuclei of small atoms (7, 6)
  • This gas makes up 0.000007% of the atmosphere, and absorbs UV light in the stratosphere. (5)
  • This gas makes up 0.038% of the atmosphere, and is used in phosynthesis. (6, 7)
  • This gas makes up 21% of the atmosphere, and is used in aerobic respiration. (6)
  • This gas makes up 78% of the atmosphere, and is part of proteins. (8)
