Temperature Inversion

  • It is a reversal of the normal behavior of temperature in the troposphere.

  • In which a layer of cool air at the surface is overlain by a layer of warmer air.

  • Under normal conditions, temperature generally decreases with height.

  • Inversions play a significant role in determining:

    • Cloud forms

    • Precipitation

    • Visibility

Ground inversion:

  • Surface temperature inversion in lower

  • Middle latitude occurs during cold nights and gets destroyed during daytime.

Subsidence Inversion

  • Develops when a widespread layer of air descends.

  • It’s called Upper Surface Temperature Inversion

  • Because it takes place in the upper parts of the atmosphere.

  • Compressed and heated by the resulting increase in atmospheric pressure.

Ideal Conditions for Temperature Inversion

  • Long nights

  • Clear skies

  • Calm and stable air
