The atmosphere plays an important role in temperature control. Atmosphere covers the Earth, like a blanket. Air is a bad conductor of heat. The atmosphere keeps the average temperature of the Earth fairly steady during the day and even during the course of the whole year. It also prevents the sudden increase in temperature during the daylight hours. Moreover, during the night, it slows down the escape of heat into outer space.
