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 on latitude. Above this layer is the heterosphere.
