outermost layer

Exosphere

300 km - >600 km

temperature goes up with altitude satellites orbit here temperature goes up with altitude, the hottest layer auroras occur here temperature drops with altitude, the coldest layer meteors burn up here radio waves reflected to Earth temperature goes up with altitude

Thermosphere

90 km - >300 km

Mesosphere

50 km - 90 km

Stratosphere

16 km - 50 km

jets fly here ozone layer at top of this layer layer nearest Earth

Troposphere

0 km - 16 km

all weather happens here half of the air in the atmosphere temperature drops with altitude
