Image:Atmospheric Absorbance of Electromagnetic Waves (labelled)

Description: Labelled illustration showing the absorbance of electromagnetic waves by the Earth's atmosphere. Different frequencies of radiation are absorbed by different amounts, notably visible light and radio waves are largely transmitted, but infrared and high frequency x-rays and gamma rays are largely blocked.
