A New Reference
I would like to see a reference for the sentence, "An atmosphere may be retained for a longer duration, if the gravity is high and the atmosphere's temperature is low." I would like to know what the author considers a "low" atmospheric temperature. I will also look.Jsolebello (talk) 18:02, 13 July 2010 (UTC)Joey E Solebello
Percentages don't add to 100
" Earth's atmosphere contains roughly (by molar content/volume) 78.08% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, a variable amount (average around 1.247%) water vapor, 0.93% argon, 0.038% carbon dioxide, and traces of hydrogen, helium, and other "noble" gases."
Atmospheres of gas planets
I've removed Some planets consist mainly of various gases, but only their outer layer is their atmosphere. From the lead. There was no citation and the statment is not supported in the article body. It also is contradicted by a cited statement at Atmosphere_of_Jupiter#cite_ref-Guillot1999_2- (note ). ~KvnG 19:28, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Held in place
The statement in the lede/lead "layer of gases surrounding a planet or other material body of sufficient mass that is held in place by the gravity of the body" seems to preclude a steady state creation and loss of the gasses. Any thoughts on a clearer wording?SovalValtos (talk) 20:23, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
B class requirements
Per WP:BCLASS, I've reassessed this to C because the main issue is poor sourcing. There are just five references, from that two source the greek meaning, and the remaining three seem to only support specific minor parts of the article. -Ugog Nizdast (talk) 18:33, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
