The tropopause is between the troposphere and the stratosphere. The layers are not to scale.

The tropopause is a boundary region in Earth's atmosphere between the troposphere and the stratosphere. Here the air ceases to cool at -56.5°C (-70°F), and the air becomes almost completely dry.

Most commercial aircraft are flown in the Tropopause.
