Troposphere This is the layer that is closest to the surface of the earth It’s elevation ranges from 0 to 10 km

Stratosphere:

Stratosphere This layer sits on top of the troposphere It’s elevation ranges from 10 km to around 25 km This layer contains the ozone layer, which protects us from harmful sunlight

Mesosphere:

Mesosphere This layer is above the stratosphere It’s elevation ranges from 25 to 100 km

Thermosphere :

Thermosphere This is the highest layer of the atmosphere It’s height ranges from 100 to 400 km This is where most small meteorites burn up and is also the location in the atmosphere that the northern lights occur (aurora borealis)
