1. Earths spheres. (Сферах земли)
Ecosphere – there are many subsystems that make up the natural environment of a planetary ecosystem or the "ecosphere" of the Earth. Many of the subsystems are characterized as "spheres", which coincides with the shape of the planet. Four areas for which most other fields are a subtype are the atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere and Geosphere. Listed roughly from the outer to innermost the named spheres of the Earth:
The exosphere – the outer layer of the atmosphere.
