• Stratosphere

    Region extending to an altitude of about 40 km; the temperature, at first almost constant, increases with altitude. The air, which is very rarefied, is at rest and its constituents tend to be distributed according to their weight; there is very little water vapor. In the upper part of the stratosphere the temperature tends to rise due to the formation of ozone, which also absorbs ultraviolet radiation otherwise dangerous to life.
