    The layers of atmosphere are as follows:<div>1.Troposphere :</div><div>It is the lowest layer which starts from ground level and extends up to 10 km. We humans live in this layer. Most of the clouds appear here because 99% of the water vapor in the atmosphere is found in this layer .</div><div>2.Stratosphere :</div><div>The next layer up is called the stratosphere. The stratosphere extends from the top of the troposphere to about 50 km above the ground. The ozone layer is also found within the stratosphere absorb high-energy ultraviolet (UV) light from the Sun.</div><div>3.Mesosphere :</div><div>Above the stratosphere is the mesosphere. It is extended upto a height of about 85 km (53 miles) above our planet. Most meteors burn up in the mesosphere.</div><div>4.Thermosphere : </div><div>The layer above the mesosphere is called the thermosphere. Air is very rarely found here. High-energy X-rays and UV radiation from the Sun are absorbed in the thermosphere.</div><div>5.Exosphere :</div><div>It is considered as an outermost layer of atmosphere. They are very loosely bound to the atmosphere.</div>
