An atmosphere (atmos meaning ‘vapour’), and (sphaira, meaning ‘sphere’) is a layer or a set of layers of gases surrounding a planet or other material body, that is held in place by the gravity of that body. An atmosphere is more likely to be retained if the gravity it is subject to is high and the temperature of the atmosphere is ://   The thermosphere is the fourth layer of the Earth's is directly above the mesosphere (middle layer) and directly below the exosphere (top layer).

The name thermosphere is taken from the Greek word "thermos" which means 'heat'. This layer has high temperatures because it absorbs X-rays and extreme ultraviolet radiation from the Sun. Even though it has temperatures of Here is what John C.

The upper mesosphere and lower thermosphere: a review of experiment and theory. [R M Johnson; T L Killeen;] -- A review of progress made in recent years in experimental and theoretical investigation of the mesosphere, lower thermosphere, and ionosphere (MLTI). The volume is divided into five sections: The thermosphere is that rarefied portion of a planetary atmosphere which extends from the top of the middle atmosphere (mesosphere) to the beginning of outer space (exosphere; Figure T15).

On most planets the thermosphere is characterized by temperatures which increase dramatically with altitude due to various solar and non-solar heating The temperatur of the thermosphere may reach degrees C or more. # Mesosphere:The tempereature in the mesosphere drops to about degrees C.

#   The mesosphere is a part of the atmosphere. It is between the stratosphere and the thermosphere. On Earth, the mesosphere starts at 50 kilometers above the planet to about 90 km above the planet. The mesosphere is the most poorly understood part of the atmosphere.

The mesosphere lies above the highest point for flying a plane, but below the The top of the mesosphere is the coldest part of the atmosphere.

It can get down to ° C (° F) there. As you go higher in the mesosphere, the air gets colder. The air is much thinner (less dense) in the mesosphere than in the stratosphere below.

There are fewer air molecules to absorb incoming electromagnetic radiation from the Sun. That includes molecules of ozone, which absorb ?page=/earth/Atmosphere/ The book should therefore be useful both to the newcomer, as an introduction to this field of research, and to the more experienced researcher, providing an overview of research in progress as well as a convenient reference collection of papers describing our current understanding.

Meant as a non-technical introduction for those with an interest in knowing more about the totally different and highly hazardous environment The mesosphere is a layer of Earth's atmosphere.

It starts about 50 km (31 miles) above the ground and goes all the way up to 85 km (53 miles) high. The layer below it is called the stratosphere. The layer above it is the thermosphere. The border between the mesosphere and the thermosphere is called the mesopause.
