Diagram of Titan's Atmosphere Like the Earth's atmosphere, Titan's atmosphere can be separated into the troposphere, stratosphere, and upper atmosphere. The troposphere is the densest part of the atmosphere, where the temperature is the warmest near the ground, and decreases as you go to higher altitudes. In the thinner stratosphere, however, temperature increases with altitude. The boundary between the two regions is called the tropopause.
