Short summary
The expressions that determine the altitude and number density at peak of the OH* layer were derived. OH* number density in the vicinity of the OH* layer is directly proportional to the atomic oxygen concentration and inversely proportional to the power of temperature. The peak of the layer number density is anti-correlated with the height of the peak. Atomic oxygen is responsible for the vertical separation of sub-layers with different vibrational numbers, and for the distance between them.
