The Earth atmosphere below 105 km altitude where complete vertical mixing yields a near-homogeneous composition of about 78.1% N2, 20.9% O2, 0.9% Ar, and 0.1% CO2 and trace constituents. The homopause (or turbopause) marks the ceiling of the homosphere. The homosphere can be broadly divided into three distinct regimes

The lower layer in a two part classification of the atmosphere based on the general homogeneity of chemical composition. In this layer, nitrogen, oxygen, argon, carbon dioxide, and the trace gases dominate and remain constant in their relative proportions. The homosphere extends from the Earth's surface to a height of 80 to 100 kilometers depending...
