The Tropopause: Varity of Definitions and Modern Approaches to Identification

A. R. Ivanova

Presented is a re view of the papers dealing with a problem of the tropopause definition as an interface between the troposphere and stratosphere. It is demonstrated that there are more than ten approaches to the tropopause identification based on the differences in thermal, chemical, dynamic, and radiation regimes of the troposphere and stratosphere. Given are the examples of the tropopause approximation with different surfaces or layers of specific proper ties.
