Atomsphere
ATMOSPHERE
Owen(Weiwei) XinG
The troposphere is the lowest layer of
Earth's atmosphere. The troposphere
starts at Earth's surface and goes up
to a height of 7 to 20 km (4 to 12
miles, or 23,000 to 65,000 feet) above
sea level. Most of the mass (about
75-80%) of the atmosphere is in the
troposphere. Almost all weather occurs
within this layer. Air is warmest at the
bottom of the troposphere near ground
level. Higher up it gets colder. Air
pressure and the density of the air are
also less at high altitudes. The layer
above the troposphere is called the
stratosphere. Nearly all of the water
vapor and dust particles in the atmo-
sphere are in the troposphere.
The stratosphere is a layer of Earth's
atmosphere. The stratosphere is the
second layer, as one moves upward
from Earth's surface, of the atmo-
sphere. The stratosphere is above the
troposphere and below the meso-
sphere. The top of the stratosphere
occurs at 50 km (31 miles) altitude.
The boundary between the strato-
sphere and the mesosphere above is
called the stratopause. The altitude of
the bottom of the stratosphere varies
with latitude and with the seasons,
occurring between about 8 and 16 km
(5 and 10 miles, or 26,000 to 53,000
feet). The bottom of the stratosphere
is around 16 km (10 miles or 53,000
feet) above Earth's surface near the
equator, around 10 km (6 miles) at
mid-latitudes, and around 8 km (5
miles) near the poles.
The thermosphere is a layer of Earth's
atmosphere. The thermosphere is
directly above the mesosphere and
below the exosphere. It extends from
about 90 km (56 miles) to between
500 and 1,000 km (311 to 621 miles)
above our planet.Temperatures climb
sharply in the lower thermosphere
(below 200 to 300 km altitude), then
level off and hold fairly steady with
increasing altitude above that height.
Solar activity strongly influences
temperature in the thermosphere. The
thermosphere is typically about 200
C (360 F) hotter in the daytime than
at night, and roughly 500 C (900 F)
hotter when the Sun is very active
than at other times.

becomes very thin. The region where
atoms and molecules escape into
space is referred to as the exosphere.

Atmosphere layers overview
ATMOSPHERE
Owen(Weiwei) XinG
The atmosphere is composed of a shell of gases that surrounds the Earth. This shell is remarkably thin, only
about several hundred kilometers thick. While this may seem large, it is extremely small when you consider it in
comparison with the size of the Earth.
The atmosphere contains many gases, but the 2 most abundant by far are Nitrogen and Oxygen. Together,
these 2 gases make up approximately 99% of the air. The chart on right hand side shows this. The chart refers
to the "Troposphere", which is the bottom layer of the atmosphere.
Only easured for ozonesondes; for other sources it is extracted from reanalyses
B-factors for O3, N2O and H2O as a function of
changing time period (panels a, c and d respec-
tively) and for O3 as a function of accumulated
data sources (panel b). The 80% level in all panels

Some of the greenhouse gases occur in nature like water vapor, carbon dioxide; methane and nitrous oxide, on
the other side there are exclusively human-made like gases used for aerosols.
Annual Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Christchurch
Levels of several important greenhouse gases have increased by about 25 percent since large-
scale industrialization began around 150 years ago. During the past 20 years, about three-quarters
of human-made carbon dioxide emissions were from burning fossil fuels.
Trends in Atmospheric Concentrations and Anthropogenic Emissions of Carbon Dioxide
From the trend we can clearly see he rices of CO2, thus it is important to lower the greenhouse gases.
Atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases are determined by the balance between sources
(emissions of the gas from human activities and natural systems) and sinks (the removal of the gas from
the atmosphere by conversion to a different chemical compound).
Positive effect
The greenhouse effect was made to have a positive effect, but human activities have made it a negative one.
The greenhouse effect was made to keep the Earth's average temperature (14oC or 57oF) the same. The
atmosphere has small amounts of greenhouse gases to trap heat and warm the Earth. Without this greenhouse
effect, the Earth's temperature could be as low as -18oC (-0.4oF). So the greenhouse effect assures us we
won't freeze to death.
Harmful effect
On the negative side, this Greenhouse effect slowly but steadily increases the temperature of the world! Our
Earth is getting hotter and hotter every year. Ice in the North is melting and the polar bears and other dwellers of
the cold are losing their homes quickly. The greenhouse effect WAS supposed to simply keep the Earth at the
same temperature. But carbon dioxide (CO2) levels and other greenhouse gases are increasing in the ozone
layer and trap more heat because we have invented the car, burned fossil fuels in factories, burned wood as
campfires, and cut down the forests. As we continue to release these gases, the Earth will rapidly get hotter.
The change of global temperature and strength of it can be positive and negative influence. However people are
more attentive to the negative side. The global warming causing by the greenhouse effect to the nature eco-
system has causing influences such as unusual temperature, surface of sea level rises, ice-age melt, lake and
river that late frost and melt early as well as some numbers of plant and animal are decreasing.

Green house effect
Global warming is the rise in the average temperature of Earths atmosphere and oceans since the
late 19th century, and its projected continuation. Since the early 20th century, Earths mean surface tem-
perature has increased by about 0.8 C (1.4 F), with about two-thirds of the increase occurring since 1980.
Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and scientists are more than 90% certain that it is primarily
caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by human activities such as defor-
estation and the burning of fossil fuels.These fndings are recognized by the national science academies of
all major industrialized nations.

CARBON SINK
A carbon sink is a natural or artificial reservoir that accumulates and stores some carbon-containing
chemical compound for an indefinite period. The process by which carbon sinks remove carbon dioxide
(CO2) from the atmosphere is known as carbon sequestration. Public awareness of the significance of
CO2 sinks has grown since passage of the Kyoto Protocol, which promotes their use as a form of
carbon offset.
The main natural sinks are:
Absorption of carbon dioxide by the oceans via physicochemical and biological
processes
Photosynthesis by terrestrial plants
Natural sinks are typically much larger than artificial sinks. The main artificial sinks are:
Landfills
Carbon capture and storage proposals
Carbon sources include:
Fossil fuels
Farmland; there are proposals for improvements in farming practices to
reverse this.
Diagram illustrating a simplified version of the carbon cycle.
Part of understanding how the climate is likely to change in future is understanding how some reservoirs
which are currently absorbing carbon (carbon sinks) might stop absorbing carbon in future.
As result of harmful effect of carbon dioxide, Carbon sinks are the most effective way for New Zealand-
ers to extract carbon from the atmosphere. They allow you to have the benefit, use and control of your
initiative without relying solely on the government to save us.
Natural ways of eliminates carbon dioxides
Ocean
One way to increase the carbon sequestration
efficiency of the oceans is to add micrometre-sized
iron particles in the form of either hematite (iron
oxide) or melanterite (iron sulfate) to certain regions
of the ocean. This has the effect of stimulating
growth of plankton. Iron is an important nutrient for
phytoplankton, usually made available via upwelling
along the continental shelves, inflows from rivers and
streams, as well as deposition of dust suspended in
the atmosphere. Natural sources of ocean iron have
been declining in recent decades, contributing to an
overall decline in ocean productivity. Yet in the
presence of iron nutrients plankton populations
quickly grow, or 'bloom', expanding the base of
biomass productivity throughout the region and
removing significant quantities of CO2 from the
atmosphere via photosynthesis.

Soils & Forest
Since the 1850s, a large proportion of the world's grasslands
have been tilled and converted to croplands, allowing the rapid
oxidation of large quantities of soil organic carbon.
Methods that significantly enhance carbon sequestration in soil
include no-till farming, residue mulching, cover cropping, and
crop rotation, all of which are more widely used in organic
farming than in conventional farming.[35][36] Because only 5%
of US farmland currently uses no-till and residue mulching,
there is a large potential for carbon sequestration.[37] Conver-
sion to pastureland, particularly with good management of
grazing, can sequester even more carbon in the soil.

So in order to reduce carbon dioxide is to growing forests a
mature tropical forest, at first glance, would seem to be a huge
sink for carbon dioxide. After all, the rate of photosynthesis is
huge.

Programme research 1
The ZVE (Centre for Virtual Engineering) of the Fraunhofer Institute of Industrial engineering is located on their
research campus in Stuttgart Vaihingen. The building houses a research centre for the investigation into the
development of products in a short time frame, focusing on scientific investigation related to the outcome created by
various multidisciplinary workflows. The design incorporates an open, technically innovative structure, whilst also
adhering to the existing branding strategy of the Fraunhofer Institute. The building was built this year in 2012.
Programme research 2
The interior program includes 70 interactive exhibitions, workshops and the most advanced planetarium in Northern
Europe. Long-term plans to include the community will be addressed by annually offering over 40,000 students of the
area a free trip to visit the venue. In addition, the students will be transported in hybrid busses in order to emphasize
the science centres sustainable focus.
The Inspiria Science Centre is designed by aart architects as one of the most advanced science centres in Northern
Europe and is part of a long-term plan to make knowledge the most important asset of the stfold Region in Norway.
This ambitious plan is reflected in the architectural aspiration, as the trifold form is designed as a communications
platform merging the environment, energy and health.

steel tiles wont dent, crack or de-laminate. Careful
design and superior manufacturing ensures a fine
1.3mm grout line that won't overwhelm the tile. Face
mounted for better protection of the stainless steel tile
face during installation.

"Wire mesh is a way to control the percentage of open area, the texture and the aspect ratio of a signs
design, says Harrison Horan, Vice President of Banker Wire. We offer an infinite number of textures,
allowing for looks that range from very opaque to more open and light. The different weaves provide
different patterns, enabling designers to put heavy emphasis on the vertical or the horizontal, depending
on their project goals.
Lumisty first drew widespread attention when it was
used on the windows of Pleats Please, Issey Miyake's
clothing boutique in SoHo. Since then many of the
worlds top designers and architects have opted to put
the film at the service of their own rich imaginations,
and the results have been stunning. Lumistys
applications range from museums, hotels, banks,
restaurants, and bars, to storefronts, conference
rooms, trade show exhibit

Decolite decorative filmsimulates the beautiful effect of
etched glass when applied to existing glass or plastic
surfaces. Each of our wide range of classical and
contemporary patterns is designed to enhance the
aesthetic quality of interior settings. They increase
privacy and cut glare without significant reduction of
light. They make environments safer by holding
shattered glass together, and by improving the visibility
of glass doors and partitions. They protect the life of
furnishings and fabrics by screening up to 98% of the
suns damaging ultraviolet rays.
Decolite
Blend classic and modern, fabric and translucent
looks. New bold hues and golden patterns play
well with other Armstrong finishes. And match Dot
to dot. Stripe to stripe. Pattern to pattern. Explore,
innovate, play. To complete your vision, youll find
coordinating solid colors that can be used with our
unique Graphix patterns and color cross-over
potential within our Infusions Lay-in and Partitions
lines.

Easy to work with and install, Tectum panels and
systems are cost effective and require little
maintenance. They are available in natural, white
or custom-painted finishes, and are
field-paintable up to six times.Tectum products
are cementitious wood fiber acoustical panels
composed of aspen wood fibers. In addition, all
Tectum products are "green" because they are
manufactured using only renewable wood and
other sustainable raw materials.

Innovative Structural Glass - Cladding Structures
Innovative Structural Glass specializes in integrating
glass facades on a multitude of boundary structures.
This technology can be adapted to existing
construction as well as new construction. We can
engineer attachments to steel, decorative metal
structures, concrete, masonry and wood
Cladding Structures
Exploiting the potential for enhanced dimensionality in
glass, the product is produced in rectangular, square,
and circular shapes and allows dimensional viewing
from both sides.Convex Glass can be produced in
many single-layered panels and can be safety
tempered as well. It is available in clear and low-iron
glass. Cast textures and privacy coatings are also
available. For projects that require laminating, Nathan
Allan has developed a new method of casting panels
that enables resin laminating to be successfully
applied.

Makustik is an absorbent, transparent acoustic
material. This honeycomb element is an acoustic
response to the modern office environments
needs.Highly absorbent, transparent honeycomb
elements can be used without loss of sunlight as
ceiling Lamps, screens / dividers, shielding in
jobs, baffle to prevent the propagation of sound or
absorption elements for windows.

Following my formal investigation using the same
concept that I used the new master plan,
circulation determines the exterior and interior
arrangment.
Giving layers to each level of plan, ground floor
with more complex arrangment, it simpilifies with
first and second floor.
In our atmosphere, theres layers after layers of
compositions with smooth flows, linking my
concept with this nature. Smooth the edges,
surrounding each other, relate these factor back to
the initial idea of atmosphere.
