Termosfera

La termosfera es la capa de la atmósfera de la Tierra que comienza a unos 80 km por encima de la superficie de la Tierra, donde la temperatura aumenta con la altitud. El aumento de la temperatura se debe a la absorción de la radiación UV del sol, así como a los procesos químicos causados por la absorción de la radiación UV (ionización, disociación), que es una fuente adicional de calor. La termosfera termina con la zona de termo-pausa de la atmósfera de la Tierra, donde la temperatura ya no aumenta con el aumento de la altura. Las auroras se encuentran en la termo-esfera.
