15 Atmospheric Temperatures In the Mesosphere:3. This is the COLDEST layer in the atmosphere.Altitude Temperature
16 Atmospheric Temperatures In the thermosphere:4. Even though the air is thin in the thermosphere, it is very HOT.Altitude Temperature
17 Atmospheric Temperatures Altitude Temperature5. Beyond the thermosphere is the exosphere which leads into outer space where it is very cold, because there is little to no atmosphere to absorb the Sun’s heat energy.
