It is shown, using results of direct numerical simulations, laboratory experiments, measurements in the atmospheric boundary layer, in troposphere, in stratosphere, and the satellite infrared radiances data that in many cases the temperature fluctuations in buoyancy driven chaotic and turbulent atmosphere can be well described by the distributed chaos approach based on the Bolgiano-Obukhov phenomenology. A possibility of analogous consideration of the atmospheric dynamics on other planets (Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) has been briefly discussed using the data obtained with the Phoenix lander and the radio and infrared observations.
