Earth atmosphere heights?

Post #1by PlutonianEmpire » 29.04.2012, 22:53

What are the atmosphere height values defined for earth in solarsys.ssc based on?

As far as I know, the commonly accepted height of Earth's atmosphere is 62 miles (100 km), but the height values in the atmosphere bloc is 60 km for Height and 12 km for MieScaleHeight.

As far as I know, shouldn't it be 100 km for height, and 20 for MieScaleHeight?

What's the reason for the discrepancy?
