This study was performed to analyze the variation level of tropopause height in vertical resolution using radio occultation (RO) data from GRACE database due to the high spatial resolution of radio occultation data. The analysis was conducted for data collected in the year of 2016 and latitudinal variation of study in a range of 30° S to 30° N for an equatorial region with an interval of 5°. The CPT and LRT technique is used in this analysis to identify the tropopause height due to well performance in the previous study. The analysis shows that the tropopause height location varies in the latitude of an equatorial region with the highest level reach up to 19.1 km and the lowest is 16.4km over the year of 2016. Therefore, from the analysis that shows the correlation of highest tropopause layer at near of equatorial plane for northern hemisphere while lower tropopause layer at southern hemisphere.
