How does the atmosphere affect the Earth’s gravitational field?



  1. 0 Votes

    A variety of movements in the atmosphere create gravity waves, including wind passing over terrestrial objects, polar jet streams, and radiation from space. However, it is gravity that causes these waves and not the other way around. The atmosphere doesn’t affect the gravitational field too much. It does, however, contribute to the mass of the Earth, so it slightly increases Earth’s gravitational force.
