Study Notes

Primitive Atmosphere of the Earth

  • The primary components of the primitive atmosphere of the Earth were mostly gases, including methane, ammonia, water vapor, and volcanic gases, which were released from volcanic activity.
  • The atmosphere was also dominated by hydrogen and helium, although it lacked oxygen.

Dissipation of the Early Atmosphere

  • The early atmosphere of the Earth was dissipated due to the solar winds and the intense radiation from the Sun.
  • The solar winds and radiation stripped away the lighter gases, such as hydrogen and helium, from the atmosphere, leading to their loss into space.
