The layer of air which surrounds the Earth: up to 15 km in depth at the equator and less thick in higher latitudes. The atmosphere comprises Oxygen (21%), Nitrogen (78%), Argon, Helium and other gases in minute quantities.
The gases surrounding the earth. From the sea level to 8 miles up is the troposphere, in which the temperature decreases with height. Above that is the stratosphere, in which the temperature is constant.
In rendering, the environment that surrounds the objects in a scene. For example, the simulation of fine particles (fog, smoke, or dust) in the air. When you photograph an object in the real world, it is usually within an atmosphere (for example, air) and can be surrounded by other background objects. In Maya, you may want to model only the foreground objects in a scene, represent background objects using a two-dimensional background, and then simulate the effect of an atmosphere surrounding the objects in your scene.
The atmosphere is composed of several gases extending nearly 600 miles above the Earth's crust. An atmosphere is a unit of pressure, equal to the pressure exerted by 76 cm of mercury at 0° C under standard gravity.
Condition of air in a kiln which can vary from oxidation (excess oxygen) to neutral to reduction (deficient of oxygen). In lampworking it refers the conditions that exist in a torch flame. An "oxidinzing" atmosphere is high in oxygen. A "reducing" atmoshere is low in oxygen and often softer and cooler. A reducing atmoshpere can discolor glass.
The gaseous layer covering the Earth's surface. It is constituted mainly of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%). The remaining 1% is made of various gases - the major one is argon (0.9%), others are ozone, carbon dioxide, methane, sulfur dioxide, water vapor. The regions of the atmosphere are: Troposphere, Stratosphere, Mesosphere, Chemosphere, Thermosphere, Ionosphere, and Exosphere. The atmosphere is one of the four components, together with the Lithosphere, Hydrosphere and Biosphere, that constitute the Earth's ecosystem.
The mass of air which surrounds the earth and rotates with it. International Standard Atmosphere is an imaginary condition of the atmosphere to which the performance of all aeroplane is referred for exact comparison. It assumes, at mean sea level, Temperature = 15º C; Pressure = 1013.2 millibars. The temperature is calculated to fall by 6.5º C. for every additional 1,000m (3,281ft) of height up to 11,000m (36,089ft) above sea level. A that height it is assumed to be constant at minus 56.5º C.
The gaseous envelope surrounding the Earth. The dry atmosphere consists almost entirely of nitrogen (78.1% volume mixing ratio) and oxygen (20.9% volume mixing ratio), together with a number of trace gases such as argon (0.93% volume mixing ratio), helium, and radiatively active greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (0.035% volume mixing ratio) and ozone. In addition, the atmosphere contains water vapor, whose amount is highly variable but typically 1% volume mixing ratio. The atmosphere also contains clouds and aerosols.
The gaseous environment in which the metal being treated is heated for processing. Atmospheres are used to protect from chemical change or to alter the surface chemistry of steel through the addition or removal of carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, and oxygen and to add certain metallic elements as chromium, silicon, sulfur, etc.
The earth is surrounded by a thick blanket of air, called the atmosphere. It contains the oxygen we need to breath. It is also where all the weather happens. The air in the atmosphere may be warm or cool, dry or moist. This controls the type of weather we have. The air is constantly on the move, stirred up by the Sun’s heat. The way the atmosphere moves and changes causes the changes in the weather that some parts of the world have each day. The atmosphere is made up of oxygen (nearly 21%), nitrogen (78%), and small amounts of other gases (1%). It also contains water vapour (the invisible gas form of water), and tiny droplets of water and ice that from clouds. From the clouds fall rain, snow and hail. The Earth’s gravity holds the atmosphere in place, stopping the air escaping into space.
a distinctive but intangible quality surrounding a person or thing; "an air of mystery"; "the house had a neglected air"; "an atmosphere of defeat pervaded the candidate's headquarters"; "the place had an aura of romance"
a collection of gases trapped by a celestial body's gravitational field. The gases surrounding the planet cause pressure (the weight of the gas as felt by some location on the surface) and can also filter out (or keep in) energy sent by the sun
The atmosphere is the column of air that lies above the Earth's surface. The density of this air decreases as you proceed up from the surface. The air in the atmosphere consists of 78% Nitrogen, 21% Oxygen, and 0.9% Argon. The remaining 0.1% of the atmosphere consists of ozone, water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, helium, and neon. The atmosphere is divided into different regions. The lowest two layers are the troposphere and the stratosphere respectively. These two layers contain more than 99% of the atmospheric molecules. A unit of pressure. One atmosphere (atm.) is equal to 760 mmHg (millimeters mercury) or 101.325 kPa (kilopascals).
The layer of gases that surrounds a planet. Earthâ€(tm)s atmosphere contains mainly nitrogen and oxygen, with some small amounts of other gases. It provides us with the air we breathe, insulates us from severe changes in temperature and protects us from harmful ultraviolet radiation from the Sun.
the mixture of gases that surrounds the Earth. By volume it consists of about 79.1 percent nitrogen, 20.9 percent oxygen, 0.036 percent carbon dioxide, and trace amounts of other gases. In addition, the atmosphere contains water in the form of vapor, clouds and aerosols. Scientists divide the atmosphere into separate layers, according to mixing, chemical characteristics and thermal properties. The most important layers for climate are the troposphere, and stratosphere (see definitions of each).

a gaseous envelope that surrounds the Earth. Other planets of the solar system, as well as a few of the large satellites of the outer planets, also have atmospheres, though each one has a different mixture of gases. Earth’s atmosphere consists primarily of nitrogen and oxygen. This envelope, commonly called “the air,” also contains numerous less abundant gases.

A mixture of gases surrounding the Earth. Earth's atmosphere consists of 79.1% nitrogen (by volume), 20.9% oxygen, 0.036% carbon dioxide and trace amounts of other gases. It can be divided into a number of layers according to thermal properties (temperature). The layer nearest the earth is the troposphere (up to about 10-15km above the surface), next is the stratosphere (up to about 50km). There is little mixing of gases between layers.
The envelope of air surrounding the Earth. Most of the total mass of the atmosphere lies within the troposphere and the stratosphere. Most weather events are confined to the troposphere, the lower eight to 12 km of the atmosphere. The ozone layer is found in the stratosphere which typically extends from 10 to 40 km above the Earth.
The mass of air held close to the earth by gravity. The atmosphere is subdivided into four sections: the troposphere- from the earth's surface to an altitude of about 10 km; the stratosphere - from 10 km to 50 km; the mesosphere - from 50 km to 80 km; and the thermosphere- beyond 80 km.
In general, an atmosphere is a blanket of gases surrounding a planet. Unless otherwise identified, however, the term refers to the atmosphere of Earth, which consists of nitrogen (78%), oxygen (21%), argon (0.93%), and other substances that include water vapor, carbon dioxide, ozone, and noble gases such as neon, which together comprise 0.07%.
The gaseous or air portion of the physical environment that encircles a planet. In the case of the earth, it is held more or less near the surface by the earth's gravitational attraction. The divisions of the atmosphere include the troposphere, the stratosphere, the mesosphere, the ionosphere, and the exosphere.
The mixture of gases surrounding the Earth. The Earth's atmosphere consists of about 79.1% nitrogen (by volume), 20.9% oxygen, 0.036% carbon dioxide and trace amounts of other gases. The atmosphere can be divided into a number of layers according to its mixing or chemical characteristics, generally determined by its thermal properties. The layer nearest the Earth is the troposphere, which reaches up to an altitude of about 8 km in the polar regions and up to 17 km above the equator. The stratosphere, which reaches to an altitude of about 50 km lies atop the troposphere. The mesosphere which extends up to 80-90 km is atop the stratosphere, and finally, the thermosphere, or ionosphere, gradually diminishes and forms a fuzzy border with outer space. There is relatively little mixing of gases between layers.
A unit of pressure designed to equal the average pressure of the Earth's atmosphere at sea level. In other pressure units, one atmosphere equals exactly 1013.25 millibars (mb), 101.325 kilopascals (kPa), approximately 29.92 inches of mercury (in Hg), 760.0 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), or 14.6959 pounds of force per square inch (lb/in2). This is the standard atmosphere; it equals 1.0332 technical atmosphere.

The mixture of gases and aerosols â€“ the air â€“ that surrounds the earth in layers-, protecting us from dangerous cosmic rays, powerful ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, and even meteors on collision course with earth. Although traces of atmospheric gases have been detected well out into space, 99% of the mass of the atmosphere lies below about 25 to 30 km in altitude, while 50% is concentrated in the lowest 5 km (less than the height of Mount Everest).
The gaseous mantle surrounding a planet or other body. It is thought that the atmosphere of the Earth is a secondary atmosphere. The theory is that the original (primary) atmosphere was lost during the T-Tauri stage of the Sun's evolution. Volcanoes gradually replaced this with an atmosphere of methane, carbon dioxide and water vapour. The current atmosphere evolved from this. The oceans were formed as the water vapour condensed as Earth cooled down. When plants containing chlorophyll evolved, they used the carbon dioxide for photosynthesis and introduced oxygen into our atmosphere.
The many layers of gases that surround a planet. The Earth's atmosphere is composed of several layers of gases that separate our planet from space. The major gases in the Earth's atmosphere are nitrogen and oxygen. The air we breathe is part of the atmosphere.
Atmosphere is the general name for a layer of gases that may surround a material body of sufficient mass. The gases are attracted by the gravity of the body, and held fast if gravity is sufficient and the atmosphere's temperature is low. Some planets consist mainly of various gases, and thus have very deep atmospheres (see gas giants).
Atmosphere is the mood or persistent feeling implied by a literary work. An author establishes atmosphere partly through description of setting and partly by the objects chosen to be described. Example: The atmosphere of Macbeth is very dark or tense.
( ATM) The standard atmosphere is defined as the pressure exerted by a column of mercury 760 mm high with a density of 13,595 g/cm³ at the standard acceleration due to gravity of 9.8 m/s². The 760th part of this pressure unit is the torr. The technical atmosphere (at) denotes the pressure of a force of 1 kg acting on an area of 1 cm².(03113)
This is the term used to describe the act of recording the background (or ambient) noise in a scene (e.g. in a pub scene, the sound recordist would make a special recording of just the background chatter in a pub). This is one of the rare occasions where the extras are encouraged to speak in a normal manner. Remember you CAN be heard so do not talk about the filming - you are supposed to be in a pub, café or wherever the scene is set.
Atmosphere: Electronic Suite is an album by Eloy Fritsch a keyboard player known for his work in the progressive rock group Apocalypse. As a solo artist he creates cosmic electronic music. The closest comparison would be probably Vangelis, if considering his early work, which included many analogue instruments.
In television, much of the atmosphere of the programme is created in post-production through editing and the inclusion of music. In theatre, the actor hears and ses all the elements of sound and lighting and special effects and uses his or her body and voice to help create the atmosphere.
