troposphere
The lowest layer of the atmosphere, ranging from the ground to the base
of the stratosphere (tropopause) at 10–15 km of altitude depending on the
latitude and meteorological conditions. About 70% of the mass of the
atmosphere is in the troposphere. This is where most of the weather features
occur and where the chemistry of the reactive anthropogenic species released into the atmosphere takes place.
