Various layers in the atmosphere
Our atmosphere is composed of many components. But the structure of the atmosphere is a combination of various layers. The composition of the atmosphere is divided into five layers based on temperature. These layers are as follows:
- The Ionosphere is the lowest part of the thermosphere.
- Ions are electrically charged particles that make up the ionosphere.
- This layer is defined as the layer of the atmosphere of Earth that is ionized by cosmic and solar radiation.
- It lies between 80 and 400 kilometres above the Mesopause.
