The free atmosphere is the part of the atmosphere above the peplosphere ; H. above the atmospheric boundary layer . In contrast to the peplosphere, it comprises the layers of air above the peplopause , i.e. H. above 1000-2000 m that are not subject to soil influences. Radiosondes are mostly used for research today , and in the past also manned gas balloons and weather kites .
