The core composition made of is rock and has small amounts of ammonia. • The surface composition has no surface. • It is blue and green because of the small amount of methane. • Two of the gasses from Uranus are ammonia and methane. This is the interior of Uranus. Composition and ATMOSPHERE
Surface Conditions • Wind Speed : 600 kilometers an hour • Temperature Range : - 214 degrees Celsius to - 205 degrees Celsius • Surface Pressure : 1000 bars The pictures to your right and left are Uranus's wind pressure. The one to your right is the wind pressure from A. July 2004 B. August 2006 C. May 2007. The one to your left is also a picture of Uranus's wind pressure.
