High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The stratosphere (pronounced/ straet sf r/) is the second major layer of Earth's atmosphere, just above the troposphere, and below the mesosphere. It is stratified in temperature, with warmer layers higher up and cooler layers farther down. This is in contrast to the troposphere near the Earth's surface, which is cooler higher up and warmer farther down. The border of the troposphere and stratosphere, the tropopause, is marked by where this inversion begins, which in terms of atmospheric thermodynamics is the equilibrium level. The stratosphere is situated between about 10km (6mi) and 50km (30mi) altitude above the surface at moderate latitudes, while at the poles it starts at about 8km (5mi) altitudeIt is stratified in temperature, with warmer layers higher up and cooler layers farther down. This is in contrast to the troposphere near the Eartha#39;s surface, which is cooler higher up and warmer farther down.
