An Atmosphere is the area around a cosmic object. It is made up of gases held in by means of gravity. There are two types of Atmospheres: Stellar Atmosphere, and Planetary Atmosphere. There are atmospheres on other planets as well, but the term atmosphere in this article, unless other wise noted, defines the Earth’s Atmoshpere.
Because the Atmosphere is held by gravity it can be thick enough the atmosphere forces pressure onto objects. This force gives us information on how to predict weather, how strong Hurricanes are, and just where low and high pressure is.
