For convenience, altitude lower than 500km is considered Earth’s atmosphere in general. Earth’s atmosphere consists of a number of layers that differ in properties such as composition, temperature and pressure.

Troposphere: 0-17km. extends from the surface to the bottom of the stratosphere
Stratosphere: 17-50km. contains the ozone layer
Mesosphere: 50-80km. wherein most meteors burn up
Thermosphere: 80-800km. temperature increases with altitude
