- The troposphere is the lowest part of Earth's atmosphere.

- It contains about 75% of the atmosphere's mass.

- It also contains about 99% of the atmosphere's water vapour and aerosols.

- Most weather phenomena occur in the troposphere.

- It ranges in thickness from 8km at the poles to 16km over the equator.
