Explanation:
I thought you've asked this in another question?

"th" is not a web code, 100th floor = 第100层 in Chinese

--------------------------------------------------

the <sup> and </sup> are codes to make the "th" displayed as superscript.

A translation could be:
在天文台的第100层,这一层也被称作“探索层”

May need some polish to fit the context

And there will be no "th" in Chinese, so the <sup> and </sup> should be removed from the translation.
