Ozone is a gas that is found in both Stratosphere and Troposphere. Ozone is of 2 types.
One that is found in the lower Stratosphere where it acts as a layer that protects the earth from the harmful Ultra Violet radiations of the Earth.
The other is found near the surface of the earth (Troposphere) where it acts as a pollutant and a potential greenhouse gas.

|1. Troposphere||0 – 13 km|
|2. Stratosphere||13 – 50 km|
|3. Mesosphere||50 – 85 km|
|4. Ionosphere||85 – 700 km|
|5. Exosphere||700 – 10,000 km|
